Hi,

just out of curiosity, i have noticed that new high end servers are equipped with with a socket 1366. does this mean that they will run 1366 i7 processors? and is it the same story with 1156 server motherboards? or is it still restricted to Intel Xeons somehow ?

They might run i7 processors, but they are specifically designed for Xeon 5500 series cpus, which have Socket B (LGA1366) connectors. These Xeons are designed from the same Nehalem family. Some think the i7's are drop-in substitutes: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/260457-28-e5520 I think the Xeons have two QPI links versus one, and Xeons are multisocket-capable, while the i7 can only run in a single socket motherboard.

Most server case usually complies to the below standards:
-Motherboard form factor "Enhanced Extended ATX" 13.68" x 13" (34.7cm x 33cm)
-Power : EPS 12V (with a 8-pin 12V connector to power the TWO processors)

"1366" is a socket standard used to select the motherboard.

A single socket 1366 motherboard can use i7-9xx or Xeon processors
No dual / quad / octal sockets mb can use i5 or i7 processors
