Hes talking about 1156, he most likely doesnt have the money to fork out for an X58 mobo with the triple channel memory kit aswell as a cpu.

1156 motherboards cut the price down for owning current generation intel hardware, not everyone has the money for enthusiast level hardware.

Where can you get an i7 875k for $170 (notice the correct placement of the dollar sign )

Just because you have a i7 860 doesn't mean you should give people bad advice.
I've had 3 i7 860s, all but 1 has gone well over 4.0ghz with lower than stock voltage (the one in my iMac can't because I don't believe in software overclocking). The unlocked multiplier won't actually help the CPU get to 4ghz. If the CPU can't get that high than you're stuck either way.

I can get an i7 875k for $220 after tax. Notice I put the dollar sign in the correct location.

My previous question was where can I get an i7 860 for $170 then if you are telling me to save $50. Im buying from microcenter.

Wow! That's a great deal $220! You should totally get it, heck even on sale on newegg that CPU goes for $329 (and I think that's on sale) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Tpk=i7%20875-k

Have fun with your new CPU if you decide to get it
