I'm new to upgrading the CPU. What do I need to look for to make sure the CPU is compatible with my motherboard? I currently am using a Intel Core i7 870 on an ASUS (P7H55-USB3) Intel Chipset motherboard.

Thanks

Unfortunately, the LGA1136 series has been discontinued and you can no longer purchase compatible CPUs readily available from major retailers.

You need to look at the type of socket your motherboard accepts (LGA XXXX).
