I always like to look to the future, which socket you think will out last the other?

LGA 1155 or LGA 2011? I hear that when Haswell comes out, they're phasing out 1155 for a new socket 1150 but no word on whether 2011 with see a Haswell-E or something.

LGA 1155 since it's more mainstream and affordable.

There's no point trying to plan that far ahead, things are always changing, especially in the tech industry. Besides, by the time Haswell-E comes out you will probably want a new motherboard anyways :P

Well in that case... 2011, more pins = better :D

Based on the fact that the Extreme side went for 3 year while there were 2 mid range sockets I say 2011

I dont care as long as an 8core comes to 2011 that is not a xeon (they cost a ton of money).

fine with me, by than i'll want to upgrade, maybe even longer. If i was able to use 1366 since 2008 till now i think my update path is either the next next next socket or a 8/16 core 2011.

The simple answer is 2011. 2011 will support ivy bridge E CPUs, where as the 1155 socket has no future support as of tomorrow. On top of that, the 3820 is a really solid CPU. More so than any socket 1155 CPUs . Long story short, it is more future proof. P.S. @ waco and EVERYONE else who will hunt me for saying future proof, I honestly don't care. I think future proofing is achievable, and that is simply my personal opinion. So please just understand that I can't think of a better word to use in this situation and please don't bomb this thread :erm:


Also, @Niko, just because 2011 has 2011 pins does not mean it is any better than 1155. The die has 2011 pins to support all 8 cores on the CPU, and since 2-4 of them are turned off anyways, the only thing those pins are support is basically a supped up SB chip with better architecture.

The socket has 2011 pins because the CPU has a quad channel RAM controller and that needs a lot of traces. Number of cores has nothing to do with it.
