Is this

Intel Core i7-980 Gulftown 3.33GHz LGA 1366 130W Six-Core Desktop Processor

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

compatible with this?

ASUS Rampage III Formula LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I assume that they are compatible since they are both LGA 1366. I would just like to double check first before I drop over 500$ on a new CPU.. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you

Don't buy a dead socket PC like 1366.



I have the ASUS Rampage III Formula LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard.. I'm asking if the CPU listed above in the first post, is compatible

if LGA 1366 is a dead socket I'm stuck with it cause I own that motherboard


is it compatible yes or no?
