    No, that CPU will not work with that motherboard. You’ve selected a motherboard that works with Intel processors using a LGA1155 socket.

    The AMD processor you’ve mentioned won’t fit.

    When you’ve selected a motherboard, the motherboard manufacturer will list CPUs and memory that will work with the motherboard. You can view these lists on the manufactuer’s website. Here they are for the motherboard you’re interested in: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3970#ov

    No, an SSD is not required for your computer to work.

    If you’re asking about a CPU fan, assuming your buying the retail box version of the CPU, it will probably come with a CPU fan. Check the product description.
