Intel core i7-4770 CPU @ 3.4-GHZ , 3401 Mhz , 4 core , 8 logical processors
12 GB ram
Geforce GTX 760
XTR550 550 WATT PSU
Asus PC M51 series AC Motherboard

 

So I recently purchased this motherboard  : https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01NBHXSP6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

I read that it supports Intel i7 new gen so I figured it might support older gen as well and with the 12 hours delivery I thought why not. After taking out my old motherboard I noticed that the CPU does not fit as well as my RAM ( I think its DDR2 ) all of my parts were purchased in 2013 so it made sense. I'm not sure what gen my CPU is.

 

Anyone got any suggestion on which motherboard it can support? Do i have to buy new CPU and Ram?  i tried to find maybe another identical motherboard but came up with nothing.

 

Thanks in advance.

I Think mine is 4th gen , it seems the 4770k is 4th gen , 7th gen are at 7700 like this one : https://www.amazon.ca/Intel-BX80677I77700K-7th-Desktop-Processor-i7-7700K/dp/B01MXSI216/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1492396251&sr=1-1&keywords=i7+7700k

Yes that's right. As you have found out, a 4770K uses a different CPU socket type (Socket 1150) as opposed to Socket 1151 on the motherboard you bought.  The motherboard is also designed for DDR4 memory, while you almost certainly have DDR3.

 

Socket 1150 motherboards are now mostly end of line but there are still some in stock. These will take the 4770K CPU - http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/products/motherboard/#c=90,100,89,99&sort=a8 

 

Is this part of an Asus M51AC tower by the way?  The info I've found suggests it takes a Micro ATX motherboard.  Am I correct in assuming you are replacing a faulty motherboard on that system??

Yes it is part of the tower , i replaced a bunch of stuff since 2013 . Another user also mentioned that i needed socket 1150 so i ended up going with  https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00K2MAU5Q/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
