    You will always find people who try to be self important who actually have little knowledge in forums.

    I guess the real question is why are you complaining about another site's forum thread on TPU?

    The guy who tried to correct them was right.

    That's why you come to TPU. We don't run you out for bad information, we just kick you ass. :laugh:

    If you want accurate, timely information on hardware, this is the place to be.
    You will see the occasional bad post, but for the most part TPU people are some of the most well versed, informed and knowledgable people you will find.

    That, of course, may be a biased opinion from being a menber of this site.

    It's sad when people think they're right and spread misinformation, causing others harm :(

    The guy did correct himself.

    I think calling him an idiot is abit too much. Idiots are who don't want to listen/learn, but this guy actually fixed himself.

    No your biased because your in the "hit squad", but for real the site generally has this feeling that the new posters get accustomed to; you don't act like a dick you will be fine. Not that many people are like that they usually just like i said learn the atmosphere of the site and merge into it.

    EDIT: Apologies it was the last post that you where referring to in the OP. The man was wrong about i7 he said it was 1366 exclusive but its not.

    Lol ... I'm not biased because I am in the hit squad (which in itself is just all in fun), I am biased because I come here first for problem resolution and always get an answer fast.

    Thats not bias thats the truth, its your personal experience with the site. Its true because its the same for the majority of members. Either that or we are all great lyres :laugh:

    You think people like that are annoying on forums? Try real life, computer science classes at a community college = :banghead:

    Here's a simple solution to this apparantly confusing problem:
    1156 processors work with 1156 boards.
    1366 processor work with 1366 boards.

    I already know all that, I just meant that an i5 will not work on a 1366 socket. And I also know that there are 1156 i7's.

    As a matter of fact I just got back from microcenter where I picked up a 920. :D

    But the 1156 versions are "gimped".

    The code name i7 is for top performance cpus.

    A system builder should know this. People that didn't research this shouldn't build the computer in the first place.

    I don't know what your insinuating but your posts seems rude... He is right, this thread DOES belong to GN

    why didn't he lock this? It is pretty off-topic IMO
