Hello,

I currently have a i5-2300 in my desktop, here are the specs:

https://ark.intel.com/products/52206/Intel-Core-i5-2300-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3-10-GHz-
Was looking to swap it with something new and better. Could I replace it with an i7-3770K?

(I know it's out of stock, I'll get my hands on one somehow).
If it won't work, could you suggest the best processor that would work with my motherboard?

Thank you for your time!
