Hello there,

I currently am looking to upgrade my current Intel core i7 2600k Processor too a Intel Core i7 3930k I've just purchased, and am wondering if my motherboard can support this new processor.

If my needs are better suited to also getting a new motherboard to make this new processor fit, I'm all for it!

The i7 2700k uses LGA1155 socket. The i7 3930k uses LGA2011 socket, therefor your motherboard can't support it. You'll need a LGA2011 motherboard to use the 3930k.
