Hello,
can you put a LGA775 processor (Intel Pentium 4 2.6Ghz.) into a motherboard that is for LGA1156?
...If not, what motherboard (reasonably priced) is suggested for my previously mentioned processor??

-thanks

No you can not. Not even with a CPU hammer. Any Intel socket 775 MB. The 4X series Intel chipsets perform well (P45, P43, G45, G43 etc.).

@Badge... You need to use a CPU Socket Hammer, not just a CPU Hammer. :p 

@TexTbob... Badge is correct on the recommended motherboard series. I'm a support of the ASUS P5Q PRO Turbo myself for the LGA 775 socket.

I have that MB running currently. Glad to hear the Elmer's glue I sent helped you mount your processor. You can keep it.

I thought tecmo34 had been banned for telling people to use Elmer's glue to mount their processor?

I was going to be but I worked out a deal with reynod to keep from being banned. I would go into details but swore to secrecy (Nadine was involved :D ).
