    It should work just based on the socket type, but its not guaranteed.

    we need to know what brand and model your motherboard is. It might pay to tell us what the bios revision is aswell. It is usually displayed on the post screen when you first power on the PC.

    As above - Whether or not it physically fits is very different to whether or not it will actually work.
