I recently bought this motherboard: https://www.ebay.com/itm/294506141446

And in the item description it tells me that the Xeon E5-2676v3 is compatible with it, so that's what I bought alongside that motherboard. Today I received it and tried putting the CPU into the socket just for the CPU to not fit. I was just wondering if since the motherboard's CPU bracket says "2011-0L", does that mean that the socket is not actually 2011-3 and instead a different socket? The item description clearly states that the motherboard supports LGA2011-3, so..

EDIT: The motherboard's PCB also cleary states that the motherboard is supposed to fit 2011-3 CPUs.

base 2011-3 looks like this, not any different than 2011


what google mostly shows (and wiki aswell) are OC socket editions (from 2017 up to 2084pins)

here is that lga 2011-3 OC



that is for pin coverage....
I should've probably uploaded a picture of what it looks like when I try to put the CPU into the motherboard. The notches look like they don't let the CPU fit into the socket. I tried alligning the CPU to match up with the notches on the socket but the CPUs PCB would just not fit.
