More about what difference lga1156 lga1366
  1. LGA 1366 is the socket for the 1st generation Intel® Core™ i7-9XX processors and supports the QPI memory interface (triple channel memory). The LGA 1366 is only used in higher performance desktop boards or server boards that also use triple channel memory. The LGA 1156 is the socket that supports the 1st generation Intel Core processors that use a DMI (dual memory interface). This is a main stream desktop board socket and is also used in entry level server boards and processors.

  2. The two important differences between the two are the triple channel RAM (means greater memory bandwidth) and more PCIe lanes (really good for SLI / Crossfire rigs).

    My previous gaming machine used LGA1366 for those reasons.
  3. The latest and greatest is LGA 1155. Not 1366 or 1156.
  4. 210 pins. :)
