We need to know the rest of the i5 and i7 CPU information.  Example: i5 4430, i7-4790K

If they are the same socket theoretically they should be compatible.  But it would be nice to have the versions of the i5 and i7 to be sure that your motherboard supports both of these.

...if it fits shouldn't work? 

Will you will be swapping memory modules next?  If so, physically fitting < > RAM modules working;

here too, motherboard specs and the RAM modules specs have to studied, to see if they will work together.  [dc3's one of the best; follow his advice, you can't go wrong.]
