Thinking of overclocking an old "i7 860" on "H55H-M V1.1", the MOBO is the exact one in the picture, my goal is to get to 4Ghz, so since I'm a newbie before I go buying a cooler and paste I would like to make sure if this MOBO is good enough for this task? that is the main simple question here, plus any useful thoughts on the matter are welcome, thanks.2.jpg

Wow, old school Lynnfield. Iirc, 4 GHz should be very doable but you’ll likely need 1.35V or more to get there. I had an i7 750 which overclocked to 4 GHz on a pretty budget Gigabyte mobo, so I’m sure your board is up to the task.
