i have intel i7 920 lga 1366 cpu from pc years ago that i upgraded the processors from.
yesterday i saw this cheap motherboard on amazon https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B09JZN7B52?ref=ppx_pt2_dt_b_prod_image but wording seem little confusing intel core i7/ Xeon.
i guessing it can support both intel core and xeno right?
i bought it anyway but if it doesn't work no biggie. i'm not gaming on it.
I am guessing this is a generic Chinese motherboard. It will probably work. But there is probably no support webpage, little documentation, etc. It is an X58 chipset motherboard. That chipset was released in 2008. So you are buying 10+ year old CPUs.
Not sure what your use-case is (other than "not gaming on it" ), but I wouldn't spend $100 CDN for a motherboard for 10+ year old CPUs.
Current generation AMD motherboards can be bought cheaper -- https://www.amazon.ca/MSI-A520M-PRO-VH-Micro-Motherboard/dp/B092HT2Z52/ From a known company with a support webpage.
Strong pass recommendation from me.
