Hey guys,
Im fairly new to how cpu compatibility works and i just wanted some help to know whether the cpu im going to buy will work with my motherboard.
The mother board is a gigabyte h55m-d2h and the cpu is an i5 6600k. (The bios is some award software thingo)
Any sort of help would be very useful.
Thanks,
Nick

Hello Nick,

your motherboard GIGABYTE H55M-D2H will not support an i5-6600k as there is huge generation gap........... i5-6600k is 6th generation processor which will only supported by a LGA 1151 socket type (i.e. the H110, B150, Q150, H170, Q170,Z170 chipset motherboards)

your motherboard is H55 chipset. you can see the supported cpu list here:
http://www.gigabyte.in/support-downloads/cpu-support-popup.aspx?pid=3465

for information socket and chipset with supported cpus:

*LGA 1151 (H110, B150, Q150, H170, Q170,Z170 etc. CHIPSET MOBO) = intel 6th gen cpus ex.core 6000 series (like i5 6600k)
*LGA 1150 ( H81, B85, Q85, Q87, H87 and Z87 etc. CHIPSET MOBO) = intel 4th gen cpus ex. core 4000 series & 5th gen also
*LGA 1155 (B65, H61, Q67, H67, P67 and Z68, B75, Q75, Q77, H77, Z75, z77) = INTEL 3rd gen cpus ex. core 3000 series


*LGA 1156 - released over 6 yrs ago for the 1st line of core cpus. (H55, H57, P55, and Q57 chipset mobo) = for 1st gen core cpus.
[This is your motherboard.]


Hope this helps
