I'm looking at upgrading my lousy i3 to an i7. Iv noticed a few 860 on ebay for quite cheap but they are listed as 1366. On intels site it says its an 1156. I'm not sure of the reason for this but I'm pretty sure its going to work on my 1156 P55 board. Any ideas guys, will it work? thanks.

Either the ebay sale has the socket wrong or the model number wrong.
You'd best confirm with the seller.

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Yeah the i7 860 was an 1156 socket for sure so the eBay auction has a mistake. Either its an i7 960 making it a 1366, or they didn't give the correct socket.
