2011 motherboard with 1155 processor

Is it possible to use say the 2600k or 2700k on one of the new LGA2011 motherboards ? , I want to make myself future proof without blowing close to 600 dollars on a processor and just stick to the 2600 or 2700

  1. Nope. Stick with 1155.
  2. LGA 2011, LGA 1155, and LGA 1366 all refer to the actual number of pins on the motherboard, so all those are incompatible with one another.
  3. so what is your recommendation Since i'm planning on building a new rig. Go with 1155 or Pay the extra to get the 2011 ?
  4. I am a big computer gamer what i'm looking at is the 2700k since it is still 1155 i believe
  5. For gaming you most likely will find the Intel® Core™ i5-2500K is the best processor for you. Matched up with a good Z68 board and a good HSF (heatsink/fan) and you can get top of the line gaming performance for a $100 less than the Intel Core i7-2600K.

  6. Honeslty i'd rather not go with an i5 , i'd much prefer the i7 regardless of the price difference. I know it's about 100 dollar difference but i can't help but want the i7 over the i5

    sup Chris..

    I'm going to say this once more.
    make sure you get a Z68 motherboard..



    Yea I was just a little slow on getting it out there. :D

    When it comes to gaming very few of games can take advantage of more than 4 threads. For this reason the hyper-threading on the Intel® Core™ i7-2600K has very minimal value when you are gaming. Now if you are going to be doing some heavy audio or video creation work than the Intel Core i7-2600K is a better processor.

    So a better value for that $100 is to buy a small SSD like the Intel SSD 320 40GB and use it with the Z68 board and the Intel SRT (Smart Response Technology) and use that to improve your overall system performance.

    wont there be 8core versions of ivybridge in Q1 2011(LGA1155) besides 8core SBE versions(LGA2011).LGA1155 seem to be a better upgrade path than of lga 2011 considering the expense.but didnt see any 8core ones in the lineups.
