Yes, most of the Core series CPU's from the same generation fit the same socket - LGA 1150 for 4th gen. As long as the first numeral in the product name is the same, the socket will be the same too. For example: Core i5-4670k , Core i3-4330 , Core i7-4770k are all compatible until you get into the 2011 sockets which are $500 + CPU's like the i7-4960X etc. Reply to anthony8989 Share Bpa96 June 11, 2014 3:52:19 PM thanks man Reply to Bpa96 m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
