    Wondering about Motherboard compatibility

    Raddy

      I've bought a Core i7-860 processor, and I was looking to buy an ASUS Maximus III GENE ROG motherboard to fit it in.

       

      I checked the mobo compatibility; the more expensive Maximus III FORMULA is listed as compatible, but not the GENE, which is all I can afford right now. I'm assuming that since the GENE's an LGA-1156 socket, it'll be compatible but I don't wanna order it and return it.

       

      So obviously my question is: Would an ASUS Maximus III GENE motherboard be compatible with a Core i7-860 processor?
