1155 chip doesn't fit 1155 board? (i5 2500s)

I'm just throwing together a half decent older computer to learn linux on. I'm against dual booting for various reasons. Anyway I think I'm about to ask a dumb question, but why won't an Intel I5-2500S fit in this motherboard? The I5 2500s is a just low power variant of the i5 2500.

https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Optiplex.../dp/B078T2QCK2

I've tried for a good while now, and the only way it seems its going to fit will crush all of the pins. The little green pcb of the chip just won't line up with the socket. The notches aren't in the right spot. So the only way to get the door to close on the chip, would result in a lot of the pins getting crushed. It just doesn't fit. What am I missing?

H81 = 1150 chipset

that's an 1150 motherboard, not 1155.

Ok so it was mislabeled. Can anyone suggest a low cost (or very low cost) motherboard that is 100% for sure an 1155 motherboard? That will take an 8Gb stick of ddr3. Fortunately I only paid $10 on ebay for that board.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/6D7TR-Dell-...dX3qk&LH_BIN=1 Everything I see about this one suggests that it is in fact a 1155 board.
EDIT: reviews on the seller don't seem to be the best.

I'd see about returning the board you got the first time around (they may let you just keep it if you actually paid $10 [shipping it back would likely be more than that]), not your fault it was mislabeled as a 1155 board.

Thanks for the reply. If that one doesn't work out, thoughts on this board?

it's a OEM form factor with all the woes that come with an OEM wonky form factor motherboard.

you didn't tell us about anything other than your need a socket 1155 socket so recommending anything is just going to be blind guesses.

You can skip all the woes of dual booting (what woes are there exactly? ) by just disabling the Windows drive in the BIOS when you want to boot into Linux and disable the Linux drive when you want to boot into Windows so you don't need to deal with a boot manager.

But Windows 10 has a boot manager built in and it handles my Windows 10/MX Linux/OpenSUSE/Windows 8.1 EIP installs just fine so spending money on a second system just to play with Linux seems kinda silly.

And, if you're still unwilling to dual boot .... use a virtual machine in Windows with VM Workstation Player/VMWare.

Either route is $0.

Most likely mislabelled like others have said. But you probably shouldn’t anyway. The Dells and other OEMs from that time period used a lot of different proprietary form factors and/or connectors.
Get something from ASUS, DFI, Intel, etc.

I appreciate the advice, but I already had everything else. Just needed the board, which is real cheap. Running in a VM isn't an experience I fancy. I'm wanting to try to convert to linux for day to day usage if possible, although I'm not sure if it is given the archaic word processors and the pdf editors and general office tools. There's plenty of reasons not to dual boot, to go over them would just be beating a dead horse but suffice to say I've done it enough to know not to and I agree with all the material out there which says don't do it.

Even if it doesn't work out I'm in need of a decent HTPC and this would serve that function quite well.

The Dell/Acer/Lenovo boards are cheeeep for a reason.
Proprietary form factors.
Proprietary power supply pinouts.
Proprietary heatsink mounting holes.
Proprietary fan connectors.
Locked down BIOSes.

Cheap becomes expensive. Save yourself the headache, better spend the money upfront for a motherboard made to industry standards.

Maybe I'm doing it wrong. I'll ask for your recommendation on a board. What is the least expensive board that you'd recommend in this use case? I'm asking because all the good ones I've been able to come up with have been $50-$120. Not far off from what they were new. That just doesn't seem right to me. 8 year old motherboards seem like they should be double the price of the cheap oem boards. Hell maybe even tripple. But they're not, they're 5x or 10x the price. So I'm open to the possibility that I'm doing it wrong, and maybe I'm blind and I just can't find a somewhat inexpensive board that is socket 1155, that is worth having.
