Because the cpu cost double to price of the motherboard and I have already have a Noctua u12p
heatsink, I am looking at buying a i7 960 but not many on eBay at present and they want full retail.
So I wait. BTW when I bought the motherboard, it seems like a good idea, it has a couple of pci-x
little did I know they would stop making pci-x sas HDHA.
