crankset compatibility

Hi there,

I have bought an used road frame Cannondale caad9 coming together with a FSA gossamer bb30...

I would like to use a 105 11 speed system on it and I wonder if the current crankset will be ok or would have to replace it...
From what I know on this frame I cannot install a Shimano crankset as it support just BB30...

Thank you

Or better yet
This one is threaded in the middle so it doesn't count on the press fit cups to stay pressed in. It alleviates the fit issues (creaking noises) that some BB30 frames can have.

Rotor also make a very good one
