Need help swapping cpu's.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

To make a long story short, i'm back home on leave for the weekend and I can't take my entire computer with me when I go back even though i'd like to. But what i was going to do was gut my pc(gpu, hd's except 1, swap case fans and cpu cooler & put old ones back in, etc) and leave everything else to keep it working. And I would like to swap cpu's. So....

Just want to make sure that this cpu:

will work with this mobo, and I won't have to reinstall the operating system, correct?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128394

This would be awesome if it works because then i'll just need to buy a new mobo, case, and memory.

I don't know about the compatibility, so I can't comment on that, but I do know that the OS does not have to be reinstalled. It's going to be just as seamless as changing out your memory, sound card, or some other part like that.
It's a computer!

It will work and you won't need to reinstall.
