2. The socket appears to be FCLGA1366
3. The i7-975 socket is that so one hurdle down.
4. The 975 TDP is 130 Watts so that's a challenge for many boards. This alone looks to tell me no since most CPUs that shipped on that board look to be under 100W.
5. Because http://www.foxconnsupport.com/cpusupportlist.aspx does not work today and other issues such as I can't find out which board you have.
My answer is no. Don't do this.
I have only one question.
Is Acer FX58M compatible with i7 975?
I know they are really old but..thats doesnt matter right now.
If someone needs more information just leave a comment.
