Hi, I am testing a range of desktops for a project and about 10 of them have socket 1150 motherboards with the CPU removed.

 

I don't have any 1150 CPU so I can test them so looking to buy/borrow any compatible CPU from this list

I had a look at trademe but prices were really high just to get something to test with.

 

I am in Auckland and can collect or happy to pay for some reasonable freight

even a basic Pentium would be fine if it works - I just need to boot them ..

Cheers everyone for your help. I have run out of time to test these this year so will revisit in 2018.

 

Will bump this topic up when I'm back.
