yes, this seems to be the case, i think i'll go for another pre owned 790i. since i loved that board, and i can't afford a new CPU at the moment : (

otherwise you could buy an i3 530 and a P55 board for that kinda loot and still use the ram.

It was their flagship board for that socket and cost over $300 US dollars when new.
Plus scarcity will drive prices up it still cost over $300 in N.A.
I would seriously consider moving on to a different platform and reusing your DDR3 ram.
