It all depends whether the board suports it or not and also the bios.
Even on some intel boards, different cpu with different sl number are not validated, actually this may invalidate your warranty as it is not operating under recommended conditions.
Make sure to check from the board manufacturer.
All the best,
Thank you Aryan, I'm not too concerned about invalidating the warranty, the Intel motherboard is over 5 years old. But to be on the safe side ,I'll purchase a processor with the same SL #....Thanks for the response
All the best with your new CPU.
If you dont have any questions, may be you can mark this question as answered.
