Last time I OCed was almost 10 years ago - looking for advice

Greetings community, glad to be in these forums again.

I built a 2600k rig back in December of 2011. At the time, I was able to OC it to 4GHz and it's been running like a workhorse.

Recently I started having issues with USB ports all dying. Everything points to the motherboard, as when I do BIOS reset and CMOS clear it temporarily fixes the issues.

I'm looking for a new motherboard, CPU, and RAM that I can OC to hopefully 5GHz without watercooling, I have a NNoctua NH-U12S and a Cooler Master HAF X, and Cooler Master AX850 PSU that I think I can re-use.

Any pointers, recommendations, and guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for looking.

uh

surely telling us what you plan to use the machine for or a budget would me more useful than telling us the OC you'd like to expect out of it.

Intel has a few new chips that can do 5.0 plus out of the box and AMD doesn't really OC, but if you're basing your purchase of clock speed that's kinda silly.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)
Intel i5 6400 Skylake @ X4 4588mhz (+69.9%)

Hi! Thanks for the reply.

I guess I mostly wanted to OC because it's fun to tinker and such. Ultimately, I use my PC for gaming, I have an Acer X34 ([email protected]) and a GTX 1080.

I also use my PC for work, so I have some VM test environments inside. I also do some photo editing.

My budget for CPU, Motherboard, and RAM is $800.
