Howdy ocn,

I'm looking to piece together an intel core I something just to dabble in overclocking and add it to my folding squad. I recently bought a s775/core 2 duo 8500 for overclocking, and now have a quiet speedy htpc/25k ppd folder sitting in my living room. Now I'd like to try the next generation up, I'm thinking possibly a 1366 i7 or 1156 i5?

I'm basically trying to spend as little money as possible, although I'm expecting to spend $300ish. I'd like to hit that magical 4ghz number with whatever hardware I get, I'm just looking for opinions on which mobo/cpu combo would be most fun for as cheap as possible.

Hopefully this isn't too general, thanks for any input smile.gif
