Intel i5 with Rampage 11 extreme

  Jacks1515 13:36 12 Sep 09

Hi,Will the I5 chip be compatible with the Rampage extreme mother board. I ask this as I had thought the Rampage 11 only supported i7 but have noticed a retailer selling the two as a combo.

i7 lynnfield 1156 pins
15 lynnfield 1156 pins
if the board has socket 1156 it should work
check motherboard specs to confirm.

My R2E has a socket 1366,to work with an i5,I doubt it very much.Anyway if you can afford a R2E,why skimp on the CPU?

i5 needs P55 chipset to run while i7 goes for X58.

Can you post a link for the retailer selling the two as a combo.

Just interested to know,thanks.

there is i7 nehalem that has 1366 pins, not to be confused with i7 lynnfied 1156 pins.

<<there is i7 nehalem that has 1366 pins, not to be confused with i7 lynnfied 1156 pins>>

I do know that there is scaled down Nehalem i7 1366 to i7 Lynnfied 1156,but the OP wanted to know if i5 would work with R2E not the difference between 1366 and 1156.

Don't get confused,please.
