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, 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?

Socket H2 (LGA 1155) - right choice
For You information:
typically life cycle of socket - 3.5 years (approximately)
Socket B (LGA 1366) - released in 2008
Socket H2 (LGA 1155) - released in 2011
Next is Socket R (LGA 2011) - unreleased yet. But this socket is set to supersede Socket B (LGA 1366). Release expected in Q3 2011.
