Default i7 to i9

Hey guys im looking into buying a new mobo and an i7 for it. I have a question. Will the i9 fit into LGA 1366 socket? If not, what time are an i9 socket mobo going to be released?
I didnt want to spend the cash on a new mobo and processor then have to buy a whole new mobo, if LGA 1366 doesnt support it, once the i9 comes to a reasonable price.


thanks,

-fakebird

Yes, the i9s are designed for 1366 sockets. Whether the motherboard you buy supports running an i9 is something you'll have to check for yourself.

Well you won't really know until they come out; socket 1366 motherboards will likely require a BIOS update at least for the i9s to work. Which probably won't be out until the i9s are released.

Haven't heard anything really about either of them, but when I get mine I think I am going to get the UD7. Others can comment on this as well.

I'd also go with the UD7. More features, bigger heatsinks on the mobo, better port arrangement.
