As you can see, it doesn't seem to line up. Can someone help explain to me what I'm doing wrong or what the problem is?

Does the motherboard you're using support the CPU you're putting in it? E.g - If you try and put a LGA1150 CPU into a LGA2011 motherboard socket, it won't fit.

Which model i5? As already said, if it's an LGA1150 CPU it won't fit in that 1155 socket board.

Sorry, here it is: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KPRWB9G/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

Which means it is a LGA 1150. So do you suggest I should return my motherboard and get a new processor or return my processor and get a new motherboard? I bought them at the same time.

The cpu is a socket type LGA 1150 your motherboard is a a socketLGA 1155. True the numbers are close but unfortunately they are different socket types. As  such you will not be able to use the CPU on that board as it is not compatible with each other. I would suggest a new piece either the MB or the CPU whichever is older. Just make sure the socket types match.

Keep the processor and get a new motherboard.

The CPU is the newer item.  The motherboard is for Ivy Bridge CPU's which was the previous generation of Intel CPU's.

 

I would suggest a Z97 chipset motherboard to make the most of the CPU.  Something like this seems to be about the same price, form factor etc. as the one you ordered, and might be worth considering.

I just bought an Asus Z97 A motherboard and I really like it a lot. It is mated up with my Haswell 4690, great combo.
