Switching processors help
hey, i currently own a PC with an ATX micro motherboard, it holds a E6300 intel core 2 duo (775 socket) 2 .8 ghz . will i be able to remove this processor and insert an E8700 3.16 ghz (775 socket) . will this process go smoothly?

You need to post the exact mb you are using; atx micro means next to nothing.

It is the same thing as saying I have a car; can I fit a 426 hemi in it? Maybe yes and maybe no.
