So have recently upgraded my system with an CX750 (psu) and a radeon HD 7870 (gpu) .
i noticed my cpu was bottlenecking my rig quite hard so i deced to upgrade my cpu too.

i currently have an I3-530 (LGA1156) in my MS-7613 (Iona-GL8E).
and i want to upgrade to the I5-4670K (LGA1150)

so will this new CPU fit my (gaming) rig?
as the socket numbers just seem to be off a litlle?

No, it will not. Each new Intel socket breaks compatibility. AMD often partially preserves compatibility - that's why they use nomenclature like socket AM3 and then AM3+.

No, just plain no, no, no, no, no, it is like trying to fit something bigger in something smaller, you actually could try this, but it will result in screwing up your motherboard socket and your CPU since the pins in motherboard won't fit the holes on cpu (or otherwise since i don't know are pins located in motherboard or directly on CPU) so never try to do that, you should buy a nice z97 motherboard and that's it. Hope i helped.

Negative. What is your budget for a new mobo? You don't need a lot, you'll be able to get a good mobo for a little less than $100.00. However, $150.00 would put you in to a greart mobo. Let us know and we'll get you some links.

You can't buy a Z97 motherboard yet.

No, it will not fit. The pin numbers must be exact,
Your upgrade will need to be socket 1156.
That will likely be a i7-870 or similar quad. If you can, go to the motherboard web site and see exactly which cpu upgrades are possible. You may need to update the bios.
