Dual Core i3/i5 CPU+Mobo

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a nicely OC'ing Dual Core i3/i5 CPU+Mobo combination for playing both Valve games at high FPS and for the occasional x264 Encoding session from DVD to iPod Nano... I should be getting ~$550 (obviously not going to spend all of it!!!) from the sale of the parts being replaced and the spare parts in which are lying around... I also need an LGA1155/1156 Corsair H50 mounting system considering that I have seemed to "misplace" mine HAHAHA... Any recommendations?

i myself am going to go i3 end of the week.

i recommend the i3-540 and a p55 board, asus p7p55de should cost u more than 200 for both.

and as for ur 11556 adaptor, the h50 mounting should fit all 3 intel platforms.

^^ woo lol
The best overclocking board for I3's is actually the h55m-ud2h, its really cheap but if you look at the reviews its the best overclocker and its what benchers use
took my m8's i3 to 5.0ghz

Actually, I'm not sure if that board can support my 5850 + my PCIEx1 Creative X-Fi Xtreme Audio... Or can it? If not than would there be another nice OC'er?

turns out my will power was not strong enough to refrain me from purchasing the following;
Intel Core i5-2300
ASRock P67 Pro 3
Arctic Silver MX-4
HAHA, this is going to be EPIC! However I still need an LGA1156 mounting system for my Corsair H50... I unfortunately threw my Intel mounting systems away (what a dumb crap i know... believe me)
