    Processor Upgrade

    tomas3434

      Hi, I am new to these forums...not even sure if I am posting in the right place.

      I have a box with a W3540 processor and I looked it up here http://ark.intel.com/ProductCollection.aspx?familyID=594 and it said it has a socket "FCLGA1366" and a CPU ID "106A5".
      Can I replace it with a X5680 processor with a socket ""FCLGA1366" and a CPU ID "06C2" ?
      If yes, is there anything else I will need to be aware of when upgrading?
      If no, what are my options for upgrading?
      Thanks,
      Tom
