    Strange Weird Odd Stupid Question

    Hey, do socket 754 processors fit in 939 boards? If so, do they work? if not, what prevents them.

    Nope. Because socket 754 processors have 754 pins, socket 939 processors have 939 pins. Totally different sockets.

    But think about it.... less pins doesn't necessarily mean it won't fit. I'm wondering how the pin arrangement is different if they don't fit. Looking for someone who has a 939 board and a 754 chip to check it out.
