    Yes, the FX 8300 is included in your board's CPU support list:

    ASRock > N68C-GS4 FX

    You will need at least BIOS version 1.10 for a FX 8300.

    The seller is probably worried that you will try to over clock the FX 8300, and your board in not made for over clocking. The voltage regulators on the board for the CPU are not strong enough for over clocking any AMD FX 8xxx series processor.

    The seller also might be worried that you won't use a good CPU cooler with this processor. The stock CPU cooler included in the box is Ok if you do not over clock and have a PC case with good cooling, meaning at least three fans.

    If you did have problems with your board when using this CPU, the seller might think you will blame them for selling you a processor that caused problems.

    I'm sorry but I don't understand your question. We know the FX 8300 is supported by your board with BIOS version 1.10.

    The information in the CPU-Z picture is just about your "Athlon II X4 555" CPU, but does not tell us anything about the rest of your system.

    Actually, AMD never made an Athlon II X4 555 processor, that is what an unlocked Phenom II B55 processor is shown as in CPU-Z.
