i still do not understand the hatred for lga 1156. i mean the i7 860 performs exactly like the i7 920. the only real difference is that instead of triple channel DDR3 it has dual channel DDR3 and it has less PCI-E lanes, and the PCI-E controller is now on the CPU it self instead of on the NB like LGA 1366.
pretty much the performance of a i7 920 but the LGA 1156 have alot cheaper mobos and alot cheaper ram.
