    i7-950 or i7-960 compatible with Intel DX58SO?


      I have an Intel DX58SO motherboard on an existing PC I bought back in 2009. It is possible that the processor has gone bad though I have to verify that. However, the i7-920 (2.6MHz) I am using on that motherboard is no longer available on the local market.


      Locally the Intel i7-950 (3.06MHz) & i7-960 (3.2MHz) are available and I would like to know if any of these two are compatible on this motherboard? or will I have to upgrade the motherboard as well?
