  1. No. The 4670K is an unlocked processor for overclocking. The motherboard chipset ( B75 ) does not allow overclocking. You need a Z75 or Z77 chipset board to overclock the CPU. So you would be pairing an overclocking capable CPU with a non overclocking capable motherboard.
  2. The sockets are different types. B75 is an lga1155 and that CPU is 1150. So no the wouldn't work together
  3. And I absolutely fail my reading comprehension for the day. They certainly are different sockets most importantly and will not physically be compatible together.

    What about the non-k ? Is that great for that motherboard ?

    A non K 3570 would be fine. You need Sandy or Ivy Bridge ( LGA 1155 ) for that board. The Haswell 4xxx series are LGA 1155.
