    So a bit bigger than 115x and smaller than 2011. Closer to 1366, but probably higher throughput.

    Yeah i think i like the pins on the chip better, ta "fork" with intels stupid socket designs, why change what works, and its far less of a pain in the "azz" to damage a cpu than a motherboard and damage and accidents are MUCH more likely to happen with "pin-in-board" sockets. ive always hate Intels socket and heatsink mounting mechanisms since the Pentium 4.

    JUST HURRY UP AMD BOUT TIME YOU GET AN "AZZKIKR" OUT i skipped FX for this.

    Neither pains on board or chip really bother me, I just need some zen in my life, hurry up!

    Re: AMD Socket AM4 and Bristol Ridge chip pictured up-close

    I think I prefer pins on board - I think the chip is the more expensive component to replace if I fudge a pin (I haven't, yet)

    Windows is tied to the board not the CPU, and my time for a re-install is quite expensive to me.
