looking to by my brother in law a CPU for christmas but noticed that he has a 1156 motherboard, it says that it works with i5 cards but i don't think it will allow this one as it says that it requires a LGA1155 port.

Any help would be useful and i hope this isn't a repeated post (i struggled to make out the answer in other posts)

No, the socket is incompatible.

Here is the list of what that motherboard supports exactly: http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-support-p...

No, unfortunately that CPU will not fit in his MB.

The 1156 Socket works with first generation i-Series processors (i5-xxx)

The CPU you are looking at is a third generation.

Second and third generation i-Series (i5-2xxx / i5-3xxx) use socket 1155.

4th Gen i-Series (i5-4xxx) use socket 1150.
