Intel LGA 1155 vs LGA 1366

Hello EE,

I recently purchased an LGA 1155 board with the chipset that Intel has announced recalls on. They are going to come up with an update in April. My question is should I move to LGA 1366 instead of LGA 1155? I would like to know which LGA is going to be more future proof.

No one ;) Vendors (all of them) very line our money, therefore any today's chipset/socket has very short lifecycle. Sad, but true.

well if it where you building a new sytem which LGA would you go with and why?
Well, 1366 - almost ends it's lifecycle, 1155 is more modern socket. Moreover -  1155 designed for "Sandy Bridge"
Conclusion - move from 1155 to 1366 - it's nonsense.

ok, so you recommend to stick with 1155 to just confirm with you? So eventually in time (shortly) your saying 1366 will end it's lifecycle?
