For some of the upgrading done yes I agree, even EVGA Proved you could put LGA775 Mounting points on 1156 Motherboards. It was bad buisness practice to change that around.

However, with 2011 there is such a fundemental shift in both chip size/pin count and needing memory slots on both sides of the chip that you could not avoid it.

Good to see that Noctua is stepping up to the plate.

PerryC - Yeah, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Not my colour, great fans though.
