The quad i5 I bought for my new desktop is an i5-4670K LGA1150
My motherboard is a MSI P67A-S40 Core i7 socket 1155 Motherboard w/ Intel P67 Express Chipset USB 3
Does the fact that Core i7 is listed specify that it MUST take an i7 despite the 1155 being the same? As I understand motherboards no one board is limited to one specific type of CPU in such a way. Furthermore the MSI website doesn't list this board for its support...
Why won't my CPU fit? Is this board bogus?
To specify won't fit, when I line up the notches on my CPU with the pegs that fit in the notches, the CPU hangs off the dock by about 1\16 of an inch.
