Intel Chipset

Hi, I'm researching to make my new build and was wondering how can you find the chipset on an intel processor?
I would greatly appreciate it if somebody told me this one, http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i7-3770K-Quad-Core-Processor-Cache/dp/B007SZ0EOW/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=U4X91U8F7GIT&coliid=IYYQTNGZGU3P7

But like I said, I want to know how to find out the chipset in future processors without any help :)

-Thanks

  1. Well that is the CPU. The chipset is on the motherboard and that CPU will work on multiple chipsets but an LGA1155 board.
  2. not sure what you mean exactly by chipset, i know mobos have chipsets, not sure for procie's.

    my advise, read reviews, also when you see tech news about upcoming architecture, give it a go also. You'll learn a lot, and you'll be familiar with them.
    if you can give more details we will try to help
  3. for the chipsets, lets see, we have h77 and z77 with z77 (for 1155) more for overclockers, not sure if there are lower ones like when it was with sandy bridge.

    we have x79 (i think) for a different socket though (2011)

    I don't understand? On the CPU name it says LGA1155 so isn't it compatible?
  5. LGA1155 is the socket which then calls for a socket LGA1155board. As you can see here there are many different CHIPSETS on those boards http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007627%20600093976&IsNodeId=1&name=LGA%201155
    for your selected CPU I would suggest Z77 chipset board.

    Thanks! But in the future how do I find out which chipset board is best for my CPU?

    The best way is going to a hardware site like Toms and looking up reviews. The CPU you selected is a "K" series which allows for overclock and not all the chipsets allow for that. The Z77 is the top chipset for that socket and allows for overclock.
