Solved Processor to motherboard compatibility

Specs: Win 7 home 64 bit, I5 4570s
Hello folks, I'm starting a self build for the first time, never had the guts before.

The motherboard I have available is an Asus P8 Z77-V LX2. The processor I am thinking about buying is an Intel i5 4570s. From the documentation it seems to me these two should work together, but I'd be grateful if experienced heads could confirm.

✔ Best Answer
The i5 4570s processor is an LGA 1150 one; the P8- Z77-V LX2 has an LGA 1155 socket, so is incompatible with the processor. You can find a list of supported processors here:

Thanks for spotting that, you've saved me a headache.

I'm not sure how I missed it myself...
