To all those that think lga 1366 is dead. - Page 10

post #91 of 139
There are pros and cons to buying a dead socket. I still think 1366 is very viable as there are plenty of boards and CPUs still available.

1156 is more what I'd consider dead. In have a 1156 i3 it's a great cheap chip but the mobo died and I couldn't find a good p55 board at any store anywhere near me and 1156 CPUs are getting harder to find locally as well. I ended up buying one from amazon but most there even said things like 5 left etc.

The downside to buying a dead socket is if something dies you can be left with no choice but to spend a ton of money for a whole new build. This happens to everything eventually but if you buy a dead socket your kind of starting at the beginning of the end.

Yeah I had that problem when I tried to stay with DDR2 for too long.

Ended up just screwed over by the lack of AM2+ boards that could be used for overclocking so I grabbed a used one which died and I was out $78 for what amounted to 3 months of use.

Exactly right. I think a socket being "dead" though refers not to it being slow/incapable, but rather it not being a spotlight focus and/or not getting newer CPUs. To be honest, the original post never suggested to me that the OP though clock speed meant much, rather it was a cling to the platform to cry out for relevance since it is on it's way out. You see this, more or less, from owners of every platform when it starts aging. LGA1366 is in that transition now, as I said some posts back. That's not to say it's incapable. It's still one of the best.

To be fair though, LGA1366 never was about providing a good "value" for the most part. It's an option for those with money to burn and that want the absolute best.

Sorry dude but I wouldn't invest in a new 1366 setup in a million years.I have a feeling most people feel the same.In my book that makes 1366 just as dead as my socket is.

My system for instance was built only for gaming wich in all honestly is complete overkill for gaming but i know that with 2 6 core processors running 24 threads my computer is set for a very long time of course benchmarking also i build the computer.

Ive seen the new architecture compared to the lga 1366 honestly your performance gain is a 2 percent wich is marginal so to tell me that its worth the upgrade for someone that has a 990x or 980x or even my dual 5650s lol its not.
Nobody with any sense would suggest "upgrading" a 980X or even a 950 to SB. Thats not worth it. But if you have a Q6600 and you want to upgrade, it would be silly to get 1366 over 1155 in all honesty. That is the reason that 1366 is dead; Intel will no longer be supporting it. Its not because 1366 all the sudden just sucks. Lol.

That right there just proves that lga 1366 is still a very strong socket and still has many benefits left to it.
its not dead and thanks for the link

1366 may not be dead but IMHO the biggest drawback for it is power consumption. I have a 2600k that runs faster (4.1GHz. vs. 4.5Ghz) than my 920 did and consumes almost 40% less power. (305watts vs. 185watts) That's measured at 100% load on both.

OP, your socket is dead.

Nw0rb, I hate to burst your bubble, but TWO six cores with HT are going to smash a 2500k in anything. Gaming, benching, encoding, you name it, they are going to win. So, stop trolling.
Butthurt SB owner.

1336 is not dead performance wise. It's still an extremely powerful socket. SB is not that much better.

Most of you seem to have no clear definition of "dead". Just because new tech is available doesn't mean 1336 is crap. Of course people will always buy newest tech available. It's not really rocket science.
