Will my Phenom x4 9550, fit and work with a mother board that says it accepts LGA 1150?

Will my Phenom x4 9550, fit and work with a mother board that says it accepts LGA 1150? (hardware is very much not my thing). I already have that processor, but I want the motherboard, and it says it takes LGA 1150. I'm also running windows 7 professional 64 bit

  1. No. That is an AM2/+ socket CPU.

    LGA 1150 is for Haswell Intel CPUs.
  2. LGA 1150 is an Intel socket. So no, it wont fit. You would need a socket AM2 or AM2+ motherboard.

    No,LGA 1150 boards are for 4th gen i3,i5,i7 processors.Phenom X4 9550 has Socket AM2+ Socket so you need AM2+ Board :D
  4. Okay thank you very much for the answer. I appreciate it.
    Is there any possible way to get the quadcore processor I need for that mother board for under $100?
    I'm a broke musician lol.

    Here is the motherboard I am wanting (considering)

    That's again Intel Chipset

    You need this board
    GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-US2H (rev. 2.0)

  6. No, I apologize. What I meant to ask in my follow up question is, ... is it possible to buy a quadcore processor FOR the motherboard I am wanting to buy, which is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=13-157-296

    Another words, I want to buy that mother board, but I will need to buy a processor, that is quad-core. So can I get a quad core processor for around $100 for that motherboard in my link? (no use the processor I own now)
  7. Why do you want that motherboard in particular? You could be better off with a H or B series.

    For just over $100 you could get this:

    Although it claims there to be a dual core, it has 2 physical cores and a further 2 virtual ones (hyperthreading).

    Because for the work I'm doing, the system check needs to show quad core, and also I need full ATX. And the capability of the following....
    1: Full ATX
    2: Quad core processing
    3: Video (monitor) resolution 1920x1080
    4: up to at least 16 gigs ram

    For a true quad core (and probably to have your system recognise it as one) you will need an i5 processor. They tend to be quite a lot more expensive than the i3's. They start at around $180.
  10. I recommend you this Quad Core CPU For that board :

    http://ark.intel.com/products/53446/intel-core-i5-2320-processor-6m-cache-up-to-3_30-ghz

    That's not for $ 100 though,You need to spend more some $ 179.

    Thank you for your suggestion. I can't afford that much though. I'm much too broke. $100 is my max. But I suppose I can just save money a few more months.

    You can get Dual Core in that budget if you want to stick with LGA 1155 socket board
    ;)
  13. Just get an am2/+ board for your 955. It's still a decent processor and a "quad core" like you want. Cheaper then buying a cpu and a mobo.
