PCPartpicker says no compatibility issues with this motherboard/1151 cpu. I just tried to install and found that the retention ring for the cooler will not fit properly over the 1151 cpu socket. The 7 silver cans on the left side of the CPU prevent the retention from lying flat on the motherboard. Installation would damage the board or a number of the silver circuits. RMA to Newegg costing $9 restocking fee and $15 shipping fee.
