Have i bought the wrong one?

Hi,

I have an ASUS p6t Deluxe, orginally with an i7 940. The processor became faulty, replaced with i7 860.

The physical processor seems smaller, the socket is too big. Have I bought the wrong processor?

Thanks

  1. Yes.
  2. Yes, the 860 needs a LGA 1156 socket, the P6T has a LGA 1336 socket, so either sell the 860 and get a new 920 or sell the P6T and get a LGA 1156 motherboard.

    In your defense Intel made a nasty naming mistake when they named the 860 an i7 processor.
  3. obviously the company who replaced your faulty cpu didnt bother to check that the replacement fitted the same socket....
  4. Thanks everyone.
