Hi i just bought a new cpu with lga 2011-v3, but my motherboard is only lga 1151

so i was wondering if i still would be able to use the cpu with my motherboard, or do i need to buy a new motherboard?





Please ensure your signature complies with the following restrictions:1. There must be a 17 in your signature somewhere.

You are watching: Lga 2011-v3 vs lga 1151

2. No pictures under any circumstances, ever ever.




while the socket is a factor, make sure you understand chipsets.


A Z270 motherboard is LGA 1151, but doesn"t support an i7-8700



I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)


How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explained, group reg is bad
