I guess you have to expect to pay a hefty price for a motherboard for a $1000+ CPU.

it is work for my processor socket ?are u sure ? it is good like asus and gigabyte ?

The board will work fine, the 1366 socket is for your series of processor, and the X58 is an enthusiast chipset.

You just won't have those extra slots for a giant motherboard capable of something such as Three-Way SLI. Which isn't a problem for you.

That board will work perfectly fine with the I7-990x.
