Sadly no. Your motherboard has an 1155 socket, and this CPU is an 1150 socket. In short, you can only use Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge CPUs. This i7-4770k is a Haswell CPU

lol I did something similar for my first CPU buy, ended up with something really bad though (Didn't have enough money to search by highest price). Hopefully your next CPU you buy wont be the worst overclocker, I personally hate when I get a chip that can't overclock without a million volts in it lmao

With a Zallman Z11 case, a bunch of £5 fans, and the Coolmaster Hyper 212 Plus, I rarely hit 50C. The only time I get serious temps is when I play a game on Ultra while rendering a video.
As far as I can tell, water cooling doesn't work very well with this CPU. Others with the Hyper 212 get the same temps as me.
I'm also overclocked to 4.5GHz.
