Cool, so you have an i7-965? and at what speed is that? was that not fun overclocking it?
If you live in holland (like i do) prices are gay! use the uk websites, or the us ones if you dont mind the shipping.
even with the exchange rate it works out WAY cheaper, damn expensive country! 51% TAX my arse!
so to recap (it seems you haven't) you've already heard from a number of people now who say the E8xxx series from Intel on the LGA775 platfom is one hell of an overclocker!!
Also on the 1156 Platform, the i5-5/6xx series from Intel are MEGA overclockers!!
As too are the AMD processors, if you're looking for cheap then this is your best route,
But its hard to define your requirements really? "just for fun" will sort of cut it, but you have a high-end cpu already, with that equipment you should have a basic/advanced knowledge of the overclocking principles, but i fail to see the necessity to ask, then dismiss the advice you seek?
the choice is vast, the advice above is correct, end-o-thread?
