Had some problems when getting parts in which i stupidly bought the wrong processor for my motherboard, long story short i am struggling to find a cheap processor that will fit the motherboard and hope that someone can help me find one as to check if the motherboard is still working as intended so i can boot up my computer as to check the bios. Any help would be gratefully appreciated :)

The Z87 chipset supports the LGA 1150 haswell socket so the cheapest would probably be the Pentium G3220

What a waste. You bought the wrong CPU XD

Did you confirm with others to see your build's compatibility or did you just buy the wrong one ?
