  2. Best answer
    Never. Its impossible as the socket will not just let the CPU fit in , forget about chipset and other issues.
    Get a motherboard with the LGA 1336 socket. That will be compatible with the i7-920.
  3. no, the am3 board is for just that am3 cpu's while that intel cpu is for intel motherboards.
  4. Supported CPU's:

    AMD AM3 Phenom™ II/Athlon™ II/Sempron™ 100 Series Processors
    Supports AM3 45 nm CPU
    Supports CPU up to 140 W
    AMD Cool 'n' Quiet™ Technology

    Answer no, so you would have to make a choice between the CPU's listed here.
  5. i7 920 only fits 1366 so if you have one purchase on and overclock it as they are pretty overclockable but keep within intel's Vcore recommendations.
