You may have to re-activate your version of windows aside from that you should have no problem. Make sure to use new thermal paste, and properly shut down the computer first.

It may not work due to the motherboard though.... in the case that either it doesn't support it or it doesn't have the right socket.

Can you get us your computer's model number, or even better, the motherboard model?

Under the ROG Commando spec sheet your board will support it, And just about anything else manufactured buy Intel for desktops :thumbsup: .
