Hello All

Intel i7-5820K Extreme Hex Core CPU Processor (3.30GHz, 15MB Cache, 140W, Socket 2011-V3, 28 Lanes PCI Express Generation 3)

I just wondered if this processor is compatible with my Asus P9X79 ??
Or is it worth me getting another motherboard. I've heard I need DDR 4 but I don't know if this is the case.

Got the corsair 760t case and motherboard for £90 which I thought was a bargain.

Any help would be grateful. In plain English please this is my first build.

Regards

the 5820k doesnt show up in the list of compatible processors for this board so i would say no,it wont work.it only supports gen 2 processors.hell of a deal on the case and motherboard tho.just need to choose another cpu.

Many thanks for the help Aldan. I think i will go for the standard quad core for my bulid and a decent graphics card as im planning to game on it.
