Have i bought the wrong one? Tags: CPUs Asus Intel i7 Processors Last response: September 23, 2009 6:50 PM in CPUs Share Anonymous a b à CPUs September 23, 2009 4:21:50 PM 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 More about : bought wrong someguy7 a b à CPUs September 23, 2009 5:22:05 PM Yes. Gulli September 23, 2009 5:24:15 PM 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.
