on the manufactures website it only shows the 2nd gen intel core i processors that are supported and i currently have a i5 2320, i also have been looking around online and im seeing some people say it supports 3rd gen core i processors as well but i don't want to drop some money on a new cpu and find out it doesn't work. and fyi no i will not upgrade my motherboard and ram to get a 4th, 5th or even 6th gen cpu. i just want to upgrade the cpu to an i7 3773k. it would be much cheaper for me just to upgrade to that cpu rather than upgrade the entire mother board ram and cpu for the newest generation. all i need to know is, is it possible that it will work with the motherboard i have.
