Intel's 2011 CPUs may require new motherboards

looks like Intel may be following in the Footsteps of AMD with socket Designs, at least they made theirs semi backwards compatible to some extent.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
