I just aquired a used Inspiron 530. It's got the Intel E2140 processor in it. I have a donor E6300 Core 2 Duo with ram. I would like to swap out the current processor with the C2D E6300. Is that possible? Same 775 mobo, 65nm, just different FSB.

Also, I have the 0RY007 mobo and BIOS is updated to 1.0.18, the latest.

Would I just remove the heat sink and swap processors? Any driver issues that may need to be addressed? I've never done this.
