Is this motherboard compatible with an i7 3770k Ivy Bridge CPU?

I have decided to build my own computer, but it is a little more complicated than I though

I was looking at processors and decided that the i7 3770k Ivy Bridge looked good, but I am not sure what motherboards are compatible with it.

I looked around a little bit for motherboards, and found the

GIGABYTE G1.Sniper M3

I was just wondering if this motherboard is compatible with this processor.


If this motherboard is no good, could someone please suggest a better one?


While on the topic of suggesting, I am also looking for a good Graphics Card, I am not going to be water cooling my computer, so something that doesn't get really hot and die.

    yes it is compatible.

    -Graphics card a Asus R9 280X DirectCU II would be a superb choice, no cooling problems there and has 3GB Vram on a 384-bit memory interface running at 288GB/s, though that isn't all information it's a reason enough to get one. I would take it over a GTX 770 as it will be more "future proofed" then the GTX 770.
