As long as the CPU is of the same form factor as the motherboard and the BIOS is set to accept such a processor then you are fine. A better board will probably help it to run better. A worse motherboard will lower it's abilities.

Yes.

If I'm correct you have a 3500+ Venice, meaning you would have to match it up with a socket 939 motherboard.

You don't need the same form factor, i.e. if the cpu came from a mATX mobo, it doesn't mean it won't run on an ATX mobo. All you need to do is match up the socket type, which is the 939 in the case of a venice core.

CPU Form Factor. As long as the CPU form factor is the same as the CPU form factor on the motherboard.

In other words, an AthlonXP form factor (Socket "A") CPU will not fit a motherboard with a CPU form factor of Socket 939. Hopefully this clarifies it for you as I did not type "CPU" on the motherboard.

Edit:

Here is a bit of research for you that explains there are many more "form factors" than a motherboard form factor footprint size.

In fact the motherboard sports many different form factors, dependent on not only the processor, but the bios chip and many other form factored chips.
