Motherboard-Processor Socket Compatibility Cheatsheet

Knowing about socket of both your processor AND a motherboard is very important: if sockets of your processor and motherboard are not fully compatible with each other, then something from the following will happen:

1) You just physically wouldn’t be able to insert the processor into the socket of the motherboard.
2) You will insert the processor into the socket of the motherboard but it will not work because of architectural differences of sockets.
3) You will insert the processor into the socket and it even will work… but it will not work at its full capabilities (partial compatibility)

Of course, you would not want any of this to happen to you? This is why picking right motherboard for your processor and vice versa is incredibly important!

But what if you don’t know anything about all these numerous sockets? Do not worry, I have a solution!

Only today, for 4.99$, you can buy the…

*author gets a strong slap in the face*

OUCH, I almost turned into a typical seller of unnecessary junk! Unacceptable!

I have a great solution for this problem – specially created motherboard-processor compatibility spreadsheet.

Here you can find every really relevant socket and a full list of every compatible processor for these sockets.

Press Control+F and type name of needed processor or socket.
