CPU sockets - 1156
#1
My motherboard is dying and I have an Intel i5 piece o' crap. It fits into the boards 1156 socket. According to what little I understand about all I know about this, the 1156 can ONLY go into another 1156.

Anyone know if this is true?

I would rather not have to also buy a CPU just yet. But if I buy one to fit the CPU I have now, I'm stuck with what few 1156s I can find later. Don't want to do that.

If I have to buy a CPU at the same time as the motherboard, are all i5s crap or just the older one that I have? It is "just" an i5, as far as I can figure out. No numbers after them like I see everywhere now. I've had this 'puter a long time. We had 2 built, with them knowing one was leaving the state. Guess which one was having problems just a few months later?

Pretty much what I found out.


The Intel® Core™ i5-6xx / i5-7xx Processor Series uses an LGA1156 socket.
The Intel® Core™ i5-2xxx / i5-3xxx Processor Series uses an LGA1155 socket.
The Intel® Core™ i5-4xxx / i5-5675C Processors use an LGA1150 socket.
The Intel® Core™ i5-6xxx Processors Series uses an LGA1151 socket

You can go to this link and enter in your processor and see what boards fit your CPU.

Off hand I do not know which generation i5 I am running but it seems to be good for what I do with that computer. Not into gaming and such.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

I'm a gamer. WoW, ARK, Homeworld. And the more mild Sims, Roller Coaster Tycoon, and Diner Dash varieties (and anything Time Management, really). Sometimes the i5 I have has really messed with the graphics. Not as bad since I got a separate graphics card but not as good as it could be even then.

And oh wow! Using that info from the link? I have THE first series of the i5! If I am reading the info right from the system, I have the i5-650. Intel's info for them doesn't go any further back than that one. LOL Figures.

I just checked with my supplier and they only had one LGA 1156 listed and it was refurbished. I think it's time for you to consider an update.

Yeah, I've reached that conclusion. Dagnabit.

The prices for those things range from $40 to over $400. Sigh.

Thanks for the help you two!

Dang it! I spent the afternoon making a chart of all this and then couldn't find this thread. - Til now.

If it's any consolation, you'll probably find the performance of a fourth or sixth gen i5 much snappier than your first gen i5...

I'm looking at something new too, I've been using AMD chips because they are way cheaper. I'd like to find some comparisons, though.

Remember that i3, i5, and i7 don't actually mean anything concrete. It's just sort of Intel's "good-better-best" tag for whatever processor they're selling at the moment.

That's what I've heard, too, Arch. The i7s are ridiculously expensive for the most part. So I'm looking at the latest generation of the i5 with the best latency I can afford and with the 1150 socket. With emphasis on the "that I can afford" bit. I heart NewEgg.

I had a case and power supply available, so I purchased a CPU/Memory/Mobo combo offer to make a very nice (fast!) NAS for $250. What is today's good system was yesterday's "smoki'n" setup.

I just had to buy a case because the power button died. I still have the power supply in it. How did you make it a NAS? Just set it up as a never-turned-off computer w/out a monitor?
