I know this has been discussed ,I was wondering ,if anyone out there is using this Board ,(Intel DP55KG) and has physically checked the CPU socket to see if it is indeeed a LOTES ,or a possibly fault Foxconn. I am hesitant to rip apart my system to look back there . I heard all Intel boards are made by Foxconn ,so That is that .But I don't know if this means anything ,but I do notice that my Sata ports are all LOTES brand. I am just curious. I also read that this could be a problem with all 1156 boards ,making them the "Vista " of chipsets. Ahhhh I wish I just went with the 1366 from the getgo. This is creepy.
