Should be a small bit of paint on the board, with the logo and a model/series info. Most do have this.
If the system is currently working, then the first video screen will have a string of characters in the lower left corner.
This is a positive ID of the board, manufacturer, and BIOS date/board version.
Copy that and post here.
Do not go by what sales sites say "will work". Go only by what the manufacturer or retailer of the motherboard notes, from their QVL (qualified vendor list). Some boards may require a BIOS update to accept newer CPU models or memory types.
Otherwise, fatal damage could be done to the board or CPU.

If your motherboard has a 16x PCI-e slot that runs at 16x and is not throttled back (some motherboards have the slot, but throttle it back to 8x, 4x and in thin clents, 1x for various reasons),and there is nothing in the slot next to it it should be ok. However is the power supply going to be up to it, ie is the power rating greater than 750w, is it a decent brand and does it have two seperate 6 or 8 pin PCI-e auxillary power plugs?

It seems the name/identifyer/UUID were not posted because you used an image located on your computer, can you write them out for us?

Did a C&E and here is the image info.
IdentifyingNumber............Name........UUID
WB02839987WB0108190F 1066AJU A0BBD373-90CB-011-BD89-A906B45C642F
That "1066AJU" has a reference to the Lenovo IdeaPad V570.
