    are you tring to say the socket is not right on the motherboard for intel's 3770k chip?
  3. Best answer
    GA-X79-UD3 is socket LGA 2011
    Intel Core i7-3770K is socket LGA 1155

    If your budget is not high (your motherboard selection indicates otherwise), then select a socket 1155 motherboard based on the Z77 chipset, e.g., GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP4 TH, GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H, ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE (as expensive as the X79 motherboard that you selected, but dual LAN, etc.)
  4. Just read the specs it says Socket Type: LGA 2011
    Graphics Interface: PCIe 3.0 (x16) Chipset: Intel X79 Express
    SLI: Yes Form Factor: ATX
    SLI Support: Quad Video Interface: PCI Express x16
    Hybrid SLI: No MPN: GA-X79-UD3 rev. 1.0
    Hybrid Crossfire: No Memory Type: SDRAM, DDR3 SDRAM
    Crossfire: Yes CPU Socket: 2011

    Most motherboards have two or more PCI-e x16 slots, but they'll operate at x8/x8 (not an issue with PCI-e 3.0 which is twice as fast as 2.0). Select the motherboard that best meets your requirements and budget.
