Can My Sandy Bridge Board Run An Ivy Bridge Processor?


I have an ECS H61H2-M2 mobo, and am looking to upgrade the cpu. I was looking at some ivy bridge and sandy bridge processors, and was wondering if I could drop an ivy bridge into this board. It says "for second generation chips" but its still the lga 1155 socket, right?

You might have to update your bios first but it should work fine.

But what CPU do you have...I wouldn't recommend upgrading from a SB to an IB, the gain really isn't worth a whole new CPU.

Just make sure to flash your bios to the latest version before dropping in a new chip. But more importantly, only upgrade the CPU if you're going from an i3 to an i5/i7. Anything else simply won't be worth your money.
