Hello
I have read a couple of old articles which say that LGA 2011 socket is compatible with old LGA 1366 socket

Can anyone say for sure?
Thanks

Sockets arent the same and wont work, but I believe the mounting holes were the same..

Things like coolers might work across sockets, but CPUs don't.

It's a pre-release article based on a rumour. It didn't turn out to be true.

The only compatible CPU sockets I'm aware of is sockets 3-7 and socket 370, and socket 603-604.

Take a soldering iron, heat a large amount of solder, pour it in LGA 1366 (make sure to cover all pins), put LGA 2011 CPU on top, let it cool down! There ya go! Works for AMD, too!
