Although it may be obvious to think so, both systems will not support the same processors, since Intel apparently intends to provide life to its next generation of CPUs under the same pin distribution. In addition, recent rumors about PCIe 4.0 also highlight the fact that the green giant will include it. Tiger Lake at 10 nm, because at present the market or cost does not like its implementation.
Intel achieves a very similar design to the LGA1200 through the LGA1151 pinout
We didn't know what to expect from this new LGA1200, but the filtered graphics are quite precise in terms of how much this socket will have, especially compared to the LGA1151.
We must pay attention before looking at these two drawings LGA structure They are not to be measured, so measures will be important when deciding what to expect directly from one base or the other. First and foremost, Intel has produced a comprehensive and compact socket.
This is because we took advantage of the pins that the LGA1151 socket did not have above the range you specified when looking from the front. In addition, it is true that this will only be fulfilled on the LGA1200 at the top of the pinout, since the bottom is the same size and pins at LGA1151.
Therefore, from the difference from the lowest to the highest 1,8284 to just 0.9140 mm and therefore the remaining diameter will move from 34.7472 mm 35.6616 mm.
Change socket and range of storage locations
The switch to the LGA1200 will be completed in a small amount depending on the screws holding the retainer. As the socket is slightly wider at the top, the pressures of the true connection have been modified, thus maintaining an anchor that ensures its proper distribution.
So, three screws with Intel sockets face back 0.3 mm, that is, they are closer to 0.3 mm directly from the socket itself, something that will influence the storage systems they maintain and the system that requires these three scars.
The simple thing given the slight reduction in distances is that the holes for the brackets on the heatsinks and blocks are extended, providing compatibility too.
Finally, this will not affect as we mentioned earlier on Intel's four-point anchor, because due to leaks that occurred in China, IDCooling introduced its new heatsink SE-214i, which already states the basics and ensures compliance with the LGA115X at the same time.
