Will this mobo work with my cpu

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2406887&sku=A455-2040

Will it work with the intel i7 3770k?

I know they are both LGA1155 but in the description it doesn't say support for the 3rd gen intel

More about will mobo work
  1. Will work perfectly : )
  2. Are u buying the Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 32BIT Operating System Software - OEM DVD?

    Get the x64bit version, or u will not be able to use more RAM than 3GB!!!

    If u want to have a smooth running PC, x64bit version is the only way.
  3. Don't know if u need RAM as well, but this one is great fit for your system.

  4. Thanks for the ram, will it fit with this heatsink: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4420236&sku=C283-1197

    And also should i get this mobo instead: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2291301&sku=A455-2036

    Thanks for all the help!

    For windows 7 i got a pirated copy of ultimate 64 bit :p
  5. If u are not using multiple GPU's, there is no need for that mobo.
  6. I recommend CORSAIR Vengeance 99% of the time, quality RAM and low profile with XMP profile. And if u will get an aftermarket CPU cooler, low profile is the worry free remedy with perfect fit with any large cooler.

    Vengeance Low Profile heat spreaders have a reduced height of 1.03" (26.25mm).

    They're designed for high-performance systems with extra-large CPU coolers, small form factor system builds, or any other space-constrained application where standard Vengeance memory might not fit.
  7. thanks a lot! saved me some money
  8. I might be using multi-GPU in the future, do you have any suggestion on which mobo i should get thats around 170-200
  9. I just noticed, that cooler is not for your CPU!

    It state's "Cooler Master V8 CPU Fan - Socket 1366/775/AM2/AM2+,1156, AM3 120mm Fan, Modular Aluminum Fins"
    and yours is 1155!

    Sorry, never mind that, they don't list that anywhere, but the 1156 is using the same holes to mount it.

    Oh ok! so it will be fine?
  11. This one is the best cheap thing out there. Cools great and works better than some $60 CPU coolers.

    Sweet, read some review and hear its really good!

    Thanks a lot for you help, i appreciate it
  13. Last question if you don't mind

    Do you have any recommendations on mobo's
  14. Are u going to overclock?

    Do u do video editing or 3D or games?
  15. I have this one and I love it. But the one u chose is almost the same, but my overclock little better, because of its difference in the power design : )
