    it looks compatible .except the psu ,may be ,CX600 was not certified for Haswell .

    i7 4770(K) is an awesome processor but is somehow overkill If you are not planning to overklock the cpu , you wont need the K version.

    Wait so, the power supply isnt compatible with my CPU? So what do you recommend? I dont plan to overclock either.
