The I3-530 belongs in a 1156 motherboard socket, while the P6t has 1366 socket... They're very incompatible... Might wanna look into an I7-920 instead...

I had a fleeting thought of building a cheap fast rig without really thinking. m 0 l wew926 March 30, 2010 6:12:04 PM Best answer selected by wew926. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
