ⓘ LGA 1150

LGA 1150, also known as Socket H3, is a microprocessor socket used by Intels central processing units built on the Haswell microarchitecture. This socket is also used by the Haswells successor, Broadwell microarchitecture.

It is the successor of LGA 1155 and was itself succeeded by LGA 1151 in 2015.

Most motherboards with the LGA 1150 socket support varying video outputs VGA, DVI or HDMI – depending on the model and Intel Clear Video Technology.

Full support of Windows on LGA 1150 platform starts on Windows 7 - official Windows XP support is limited to selected CPUs, chipsets and only for embedded and industrial systems.

Intels Platform Controller Hub PCH for the LGA 1150 CPUs is codenamed Lynx Point. Intel Xeon processors for socket LGA 1150 use the Intel C222, C224, and C226 chipsets.

                                     

1. Heatsink

The 4 holes for fastening the heatsink to the motherboard are placed in a square with a lateral length of 75 mm for Intels sockets LGA 1156, LGA 1155, LGA 1150 and LGA 1151. Cooling solutions should therefore be interchangeable.

                                     

2. Haswell chipsets

Second generation

On May 12, 2014, Intel announced the release of two 9-series chipsets, H97 and Z97. Differences and new features of these two chipsets, compared to their H87 and Z87 counterparts, are the following:

  • Two of the six SATA ports can be converted to two PCIe lanes and used to provide M.2 or SATA Express connectivity. Intel refers to this variable configuration as Flex I/O or Flexible I/O.
  • Support for SATA Express, M.2 and Thunderbolt, though only if implemented by the motherboards manufacturer
  • Support for the fifth generation of Intel Core CPUs, built around the Broadwell microarchitecture
  • Support for Haswell Refresh CPUs out of the box

Motherboards based on H97 and Z97 chipsets were available for purchase the same day chipsets were announced.

Pino - logical board game which is based on tactics and strategy. In general this is a remix of chess, checkers and corners. The game develops imagination, concentration, teaches how to solve tasks, plan their own actions and of course to think logically.
