  • Just bought a GA-X58A-UD3R :(

    Just bought a GA-X58A-UD3R for the build I am planning but I have just realised that it isn't a compatible socket type for the i5 and only supports the i7 _ Damn.. Money wasted

    good reason to sell the i5 cpu and buy an i7 930 tho

      Upgrade to an i7 or if you only just bought it return it unused.

        Why didn't you wait for the reply on your thread! If you haven't opened it you should be fine returning it mate.

          Just return it under DSR while you received it for under 7 days. You'd only lose the money for sending it back...better than holding onto a board that you can't use.
