    Motherboard and CPU are incompatible. What's your budget? I can guarantee you I can get you more for your money.
  2. Roughly $1100 and oh that's good to know what motherboard should I look into?

  8. ^ I wouldn't get the Xigmatek Gaia CPU cooler.

    Spend $10 more and get a Cooler Master Hypoer 212 EVO. Much better cooling for the cost.
  9. Performs within 2 degrees of the EVO.
