But does the CPU still work? The boards seem expensive. I would choose a Z77 board and a new CPU. m3incorp December 23, 2012 6:11:42 PM I guess you have to expect to pay a hefty price for a motherboard for a $1000+ CPU.

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.
