hi right now im using a i5 3470 w/ LGA1155. i wanted a 8th gen cpu socket so my build would be future proof. this is what i came up with.
motherboard: gigabyte H310M A
https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16813145073 ($79.99)
CPU: intel core i3-8100
https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16819117822 ($145)
Memory: 1x8GB 2400 DDR4
https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820313516 ($98.99)
unfortunetly the total (in CAD) is around $330. if you find anything cheaper by another manafacturer (without cutting edges) please tell me. Also is this build compatible with eachother. p.s. I already have a GTX 1050 2gb dont worry about gpu or psu
ty :)
 


No, the only modern overclocking Intel processors are the K models. There is some very minor overclocking that can be accomplished on non-K CPUs, but it isn't really worth the effort.

lol sorry i forgot its a non-k model, but if i were to get an overclockable cpu would this motherboard be able to do it smoothly?
 


The H series motherboards are essentially gaming motherboards with the bells and whistles mostly removed (to make it cheaper). It really isn't designed to accommodate overclocking.
