I have a i7-860 processor and was currently using Intel dp55w motherboard and now this motherboard is now working.

I need a alternate motherboard which supports i7-860 and has LGA1156 socket.

Any suggestions would be helpful.Thank you

You will have to search sites like ASUS, MSI, EVGA, ASROCK, and such to find a compatible board. And, it is not just the socket you need to be sure of. The motherboard bios must also support your processor.

Now, all that being said, you would do much better to dispose of this old processor (in my opinion).
