Does the Xeon L3406 fit into LGA1156 motherboards?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey. I've got a Xeon L3406 which according to intel is an FCLGA1156 socket CPU. I installed it into a motherboard that had an i3-550, an another cpu that is stated to fit the FCLGA1156 socket. I've been thinking about buying an overclockable motherboard since my current OEM one does not support it. Can I just get a normal LGA1156 or does it have to be specifically FCLGA1156? Apparently normal LGA1156 processors fit into FCLGA1156 motherboards.

My stuff:


CPU :  Intel i5 8400 | GPU : MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4GB


RAM : 8GB HyperX Fury DDR4 @ 2133MHz


Mouse : Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum | Keyboard : Logitech G610 w/ Cherry MX Brown


Headset : Superlux HD681 EVO with Modmic 4.0


Monitor : Philips 220C 1680x1050 @ 60Hz

Yes this will work. FCLGA (Flip Chip Land Grid Array) means that the processor die is on top of the substrate. For modern Intel CPUs, the use of the terms FCLGA and LGA are often mixed, but boil down to the same thing.
