Will this motherboard work with i3-4130 socket 1150

Im wondering if this motherboard <ASUS B85M-E/CSM LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard> will work with i3 because it says on newegg i5/i7 but it's the same socket 1150.

    If the CPU is LGA 1150 (and it is) and the motherboard is LGA 1150 (again, it is), then they are compatible. No problem at all! Here is a link that supports it (the link is NewEgg as well)

    http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CDMQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.newegg.com%2FProduct%2FProduct.aspx%3FItem%3DN82E16813131991&ei=E0c2U7LNGOHesAT93oKYCQ&usg=AFQjCNH53lax-DyQyvI_CIWKUnrbF9dQHw&sig2=nZQicR2Eiw4Ex5_HYNmI6Q&bvm=bv.63808443,d.cWc
  2. Yes it will work.
  3. What generation of Intels i3 do you have?

    1st Generation Intel® Core™ i3-5xx Processors use a LGA1156 socket
    2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i3-21xx Processors feature a LGA1155 socket
    3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i3-32xx Processors feature a LGA1155 socket
    4th Generation Intel® Core™ i3-4xxx Processors use the LGA1150 socket

    These are the sockets they use :). Check which generation of Intels i3 CPU's you have!
    (If you have a 4th Gen i3 the motherboard you have stated above will work)

    He said that it was the same socket. :)
  5. It clearly states on Newegg that the motherboard works with socket 1150 i3/i5/i7 Processors.
  6. Yes, perfectly!
