Hello!

So I own a HP Z400 desktop and I am wondering if my motherboard is compatible with the i5 4670k 3.4Ghz quad-core 4th gen processor. I believe the mother board I have is a ATX 243.84 x 304.8 mm with a Intel® X58 Express chip set but that could not be it at all. I really don't know anything about motherboards but this is where you can find info about my PC, http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13276_na/... .

I just got a new GPU (EVGA GTX 760 SC) and I am stuck with a Intel Xeon W3503 which is not for gaming at all so it bottlenecks a lot limiting my GPU's full potential. The reason I am curious about this is because I heard the new 4th gen intel processors are only compatible with new motherboards not just any. Is this true? And if so what type of motherboard would I need?

If you read this far thank you and if you took the time to read my specs and reply then mega thanks to you!!! :D

It won't work, the motherboard is socket 1366 and the 4670k is socket 1150. You would need a socket 1150 motherboard.
