CElliott316: Thank you very much for contacting the Intel® communities. We will do our best in order to provide the information you are looking for.
For a processor to be fully compatible with a board besides the fact that the socket needs to be the same, also the microcode of the BIOS needs to be compatible with it, so, even if the socket is the same, if the BIOS does not have the microcode for the processor then it will not work with that specific motherboard.
Any further questions, please let me know.
