Regarding this page Desktop — LGA2011 and LGA2011-v3 Sockets and Processor Compatibility , i'd like to know if all the i7 3930k processors are "second gen" or if there are some 3930k that are from the first generation. If so, how you recognize them (any different serial number etc...) ? I'm asking this since i'm buying a i7 3930k but i'm choosing the right mobo to run also a 4930 in the near future and of course i want to be sure that the 3930k i'm buying is from the second gen for compatibility switching with the 4930k.
Thank you all
Hello Tellah, I would like to inform you that all I7-3930k processors are from the Sandy Bridge family (2nd generation).
