Is there any difference between FCLGA1155 and LGA1155 sockets? Does a FCLGA1155 processor (like the i-3's) need
a mobo with FCLGA1155 socket or will it work even on one with a LGA1155 socket and vice versa.

What will be the impact if one tries to upgrade from a FCLGA1155 to LGA1155 processor and vice versa.


While researching on Intel site I realized the entire i3-2100 series, i5-2390T AND i7-970 all use FCLGA Socket
while the rest of second generation processors are LGA1155 (i5-2390,2400 & 2500 series and i7-2600S).

1155 is 1155, not an issue. Good luck.

No impact really.
1155 is only 1155.

FC just stands for flip chip, don't worry about it, it's the same socket.

All of those chips you mentioned above use s1155 motherboard EXCEPT the i7-970, it uses s1366.

s1155:

i3-2100
i3-2100T
i3-2120
i5-2300
i5-2400
i5-2400S
i5-2500
i5-2500K
i7-2600
i7-2600K
