Hello WritingBuf,

Thank you for joining the Desktop Boards Community.

As mentioned before, the Intel® Desktop Compatibility Tool will help you to check the compatible processors for your motherboard. I checked this link http://processormatch.intel.com/Processors/CompatibleProcessors?componentName=DP55WG Compatible Processors, and the compatible i7 processors are;

  • Intel® Core™ i7-875K
  • Intel® Core™ i7-870S
  • Intel® Core™ i7-870

Regards,

Amy.
