  1. Best answer
    http://www.bing.com/search?q=GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3+cpu+supported
    manufacturer website, check the cpu supported list

    any z87 board.
  2. i7 4770k processor is LGA 1150 socket.

    that motherboard is a LGA 1155 socket. It is not compatible, and you can cause serious damage to both parts if you try to force it in.

    And yes, use any z87 motherboard.

    Sorry, it will not work. The Gigabyte Motherboard is LGA 1155 one, while the i7 4770k require LGA 1150 Motherboard
