Actually, someone corrected me on another forum. The Socket 423 Pentium 4 was bigger! Do keep in mind that Nehalem is no longer a square processor, one side has been elongated just slightly. It doesn't show very well in those photos. Intel processors up to thie point were always a square package.

This is the size of the processor package, not the socket:

LGA 775 = 37.5 x 37.5mm
LGA 1366 = 42.5 x 45mm
Socket 423 = 53 x 53mm
Socket 478 = 35 x 35mm
Core i7 4770k 4.2Ghz
Gigabyte Z87X-UD5H
Crucial Ballistix Sport LP 1600MHz 32GB
EVGA GTX 480 HydroCopper FTW
Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB | Windows 7 64-bit
Apogee XT + MCP655 & Thermochill Triple 140mm Radiator
Corsair AX1200 PSU | Cooler Master HAF-X
