Answers :

Depends on you mainboard and the cpu speeds it supports.

Upgrading is quite simple, this guide is a bit outdated as cpu's go
but the basics are still the same. Just open up your computer,
push aside all wiring, remove the cpu cooler/fan assembly, remove the cpu, insert the new cpu with the correct amount of cooling paste and gently insert the new cpu, reseat the cooler/fan and your done.
