Could you post a picture? It is listed as compatible with the motherboard, so I'm curious how you're putting it in.

ASRock > B75M-GL

Nah it's okay I got it in, all I needed to do was put a little tension on it to lock it in place after I did some research thanks anyways

Really should have made your own thread on the subject, because your question really has nothing to do with the OP.

In regards, if you are gaming you don't really need more CPU power but rather you need to upgrade that GPU. To do this you would be looking at a PSU upgrade as well.
To completely answer your question, you are limited to AMD APU's for socket FM1 and FM2 motherboards. The best CPU you can buy is the A10 5800k.
