No it isn't//Danne
thanx is there 1 that will pretty much mach it in price and work with the motherboard in the link
The CPU is Socket 1366 which means you will need a x58 chipset board. The board you have chosen is socket 1156, which is P55 chipset.For the P55 chipset and the board you have chosen, you need Core i3, i5, or i7 8xx series of CPU.
Do you already have that motherboard?//Danne
As Dee mentioned already, that board is compatible with socket 1156 Core i3, i5, or i7 8xx CPUs.
The Core i7 CPUs are quad cores with Hyper-Threading. This means you get 8 threads of processing power. These chips have 8MB of cache. These would best suit your needs if you plan on doing a lot of video work, or any application that you would benefit from more than 4 cores.http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-i7-860-Quad-Core-Processor/dp/B002KQBC0E/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1272309238&sr=1-2
If you don't need more than 4 threads but want a quad-core CPU, go for an i5-7xx CPU:http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-i5-750-Quad-Core-Processor/dp/B002KQBC0O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1272309755&sr=1-1
The i5-6xx chips are new dual-core CPUs with hyper-threading that are based on Intels new 32nm process. So they will have much lower power consumption. They also have built in GPUs. Not quite sure how this works if your Asus motherboard needs a discrete videocard anyway. Maybe someone else can chime in regarding this.http://www.amazon.co.uk/Processor-Intel-Core-LGA1156-Socket/dp/B0030DQHDS/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1272309305&sr=1-12http://www.amazon.co.uk/Processor-Intel-Core-LGA1156-Socket/dp/B0030DUAYU/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1272309305&sr=1-14
The Core i3 CPUs are also dual-cores with hyper-threading. They also have the integrated GPU which you probably can't utilize with that mobo.http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-Processor-integrated-Graphics-Warranty/dp/B0030DN1GO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1272310242&sr=1-1http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-3-06GHz-Processor-Cache-Boxed/dp/B0031M9QZ4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1272310242&sr=1-2
This might explain all this better than I have:http://www.brighthub.com/computing/hardware/articles/65861.aspx
One more thing to consider:http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P7P55D-E%20Premium&product=1&os=30
The support list from Asus shows that only BIOS 0608 and later are compatible with the new Core i3 and i5 CPUs. So if you have the motherboard with an eariler BIOS than 0608, those 32nm chips will not boot in it unless you have some way of upgrading the BIOS first.
thanx people yes i do already have that motherboard and reading over all of the comment does that mean that this cpu will be compatible ???
Yes that will work
If there is a way to check your BIOS version before purchasing, I would do so, you need to have 0608 or later in order for that "low power" i7 to work.
The new link he is asking about shows Low Power i5 not 7 ?
my bad, I meant i5. Sorry, as if this wasn't confusing enough!iccows: you will still need BIOS 0608 or later in order for that mobo to recognize the Core i5 750s.
With BIOS version 0608 or higher, that processor is compatible. However, it is not a good value right now, especially since it is currently a lot more expensive (in fact, 40% more expensive) and slower (2.40GHz versus 2.66GHz) than the regular i5-750 (without the "s") processor.
To be honest. If it's i5 you are going for, get the 750, forget about the "s" version. As RJL65 already mentioned, it's much more expensive and slower than the plain 750.
Here's the link Intel Core i5 750 2.66GHz Socket LGA1156 8MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor
Yes. And if I were to spend as much as the price of the i5-750s just on a processor, I would have picked an i7-860 instead. Better yet, I would stick with the plain i5-750 and put the difference towards a higher-performance graphics card (GPU).
