What's the exact model number of the CPU?
I ask because there are I7 models for Socket 1366, 1156, 1155, and 2011. Each is compatible only with its own socket type.
2.8 GHz suggests that it could be an I7-930 (Socket 1136), 860 (Socket 1156), or 2600s (Socket 1155). (There is as yet no 2.8 GHz I7 for Socket 2011.)
The motherboards you've selected are H67 (Socket 1155) ones. Unless your CPU is an I7-2600s (unusual), you have the wrong type.
Nice case? I don't own one, but Lan Li is highly regarded. Their "Lancool" (steel) series is relatively inexpensive (starts at less than $100).
