Hi so atm in my computer I have these parts. [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

My friend has given me his old parts which are a GIGABYTE Z370 HD3 and a cpu that I do not know the name of but better than mine.

Would you please be able to tell me if its worth me swapping motherboards or should i just put his cpu in my motherboard?

Thanks for the help

Your CPU is not compatible with the Z370 motherboard, which means whatever Coffee Lake CPU was in that Z370 motherboard will not be compatible with your mobo.

So, assuming it is actually a Z370 motherboard, you need to use that mobo if you want to use the new CPU that's compatible with it.
