Really? Why? Is your I5 struggling?
wouldnt you be better off getting sandi/waiting for bulldozer?
Even if it could (crosshair 4 compatible with bulldozer) you would be better off waiting till you can buy chip and mobo at same time, instead of paying good money for crosshair 4 to find out crosshair 5 come out same time or soon after bulldozer hits the market.
And no not compatible, backwards yes of course one of the great things about AMD.
Patience is a virtue!
