    Thats top of the line for your motherboard. If you want to spend your money on better performance you would need to change motherboards. Anyone looking to spend over $200 on upgrades, might consider this option. For an extra $100 or so you could build a machine with 10 times the power.

    Looks good to me. :)

    You ask a question and I'm not sure if you got a response to the question.

    The answer is yes you would need a thermal compound to bond the CPU to the heatsink. Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound is what I am using now. Some work better than other but I couldn't tell you which were better and which were worse.
