Hello, All friends !!

I wish to take a Intel Dual Core G860 processor
(Intel® Pentium® Processor G860 (3M Cache, 3.00 GHz)). Will it be compatible with the LGA 1156 Motherboards ?

Your valuable suggestions are most welcome.

The simple answer is no.

In more detailed explanation, the processor is a 1155 and the 1156 is a less advanced socket. The hardware isn't compatible, sadly.

I've run into this problem myself. It may fit but it won't work.

Good luck with your future endeavors,
