No, you can not, the 4930K uses the 2011 socket, NOT the same as the 4670K 1150 socket.

WHy do you want to do this?

That's an Intel i5 4670K swap for an Intel i7 4930 or i7 4960x. I have an MSI Z87-GD65 gaming motherboard and an ASUS GeForce GTX760 DCUIIOC graphics card.

What about the i7 4770K? I want the hyperthreading for heavy photo/video processing.

4770k would be your only i7 option that overclocks.

Jip then 4770K makes perfect sense.

Could I simply replace it in my system? No problems?

Yep. It is the same socket as your current i5-4670k. I would say that you probably want to go into the BIOS to ensure Hyper Threading is enabled.

Also, do not forget to clean off the old thermal paste and apply a new layer of it.
