The i5 3570K that you own is only compatible with Socket LGA 1155 Z68 and Z77 motherboards. You may be able to return it to the retailer and source out a Z77 ITX motherboard such as an ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe, ASROCK Z77E-ITX.Here are some options for you from PC Part Picker: Link
Thanks for the solutions!
I really needed the Asus Z97I-Plus for the S/PDIF output (i need the optical cable to connect to a wireless Headphone station), so finally I resolved to order an I5 4690K
; sure it wasn't in the considered budget, and the gained performance is quite nothing, but I hope to sell well the old processor.
As soon as everything arrives I will start the building.
So finally, the configuration I am building is:
- MOBO: Asus Z97I-Plus
- CPU: Intel I5-4690K
- RAM: HyperX Savage Kit 2 x 4 GB, 1600MHz, DDR3, Non-ECC, CL9, DIMM, XMP
- GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD7970 Dual FX
- PSU: XFX PRO550W
- STORAGE: 2x Samsung 830 SSD 512 Gb - RAID 0
- COOLER: Cooler Master RL-S12V-24PK-R2 M WaKü Seidon V
- DEMCiflex Magnetic Filters Kit
