Hi all, so I just installed water cooling and I am seeing nice low temps on my intel i5 2400. The thing is, it's only a 2nd gen processor and has very low overclockable compatabilities. So I was thinking about getting a new motherboard and processor, and get a processor that I can overclock to like 4/5ghz. Could someone recommend me a good INTEL processor for overclock ing and a motherboard to match. :)  all help appreciated.

I might be best to wait for Haswell and see what it can do.

Haswell is Intel's next generation (4th) of chips set to come out in June. I believe they are going to achieve approximately a 10% increase in performance with drops in power usage. You should look into it, it is right around the corner and the i5 Haswell should be perfect for you if you definitely want to go Intel.
