  1. Hi, Only these boards on newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007627%20600007887&IsNodeId=1&name=LGA%201366
    But does the CPU still work? The boards seem expensive. I would choose a Z77 board and a new CPU.
  2. I guess you have to expect to pay a hefty price for a motherboard for a $1000+ CPU.
  3. So I have to change the processor also ? It cost me about 1000$ in 2011


    The motherboard I already have is rampage extreme 3 from asus and I have to change it because some problems and it was cost me about 400$ .


    I just want motherboard work with my processor even from 2011 . Any advice ?
  4. Here, this MSI X58A-GD45 is at least affordable: http://www.amazon.com/MSI-PCIEx16-PCIEx1-Motherboard-X58A-GD45/dp/B004EQ6ZOQ/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1356297504&sr=8-5&keywords=socket+1366+motherboard

    And an i7-990x is an awesome CPU, albeit not the latest and greatest, enjoy!
  5. what motherboard do you have now?
  6. rampage extreme 3 but have some problems with it , so i have to change it

    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.
