Why doesnt it fit!!

im trying to install a intel q8300 processor into a sabertooth z77 motherboard but it doesn't seem to fit properly. Is this normal? Do I need a more up to date processor?

  1. (LGA1155) You need a CPU with this socket for that board. Your CPU is q8300 socket is (775).Sorry you need a new cpu for your board.

    Socket 1155 CPU ^
  2. Because a Q8300 is a LGA 775 and the Sabretooth is a LGA 1155 board. You will need to upgrade your CPU
