x58 is a 1366 pin socket. haswell is 1150 pin. your motherboard is 2 generations old, so no.
thanks for the reply.
shame to hear that.
do you think it would be worth changing the motherboard?
or would this processor do?http://www.scan.co.uk/products/intel-core-i7-3930k-enthusiast-unlocked-s-2011-sandybridge-e-six-core-32ghz-12mb-smart-cache-130w-re
or are there better processors? im just trying to find the best possibly equipment, money isnt an issue at the moment as i just want to get an understanding of what is there.
thankyou very much
