Sorry, that's not possible as they use different sockets. The i5-750 uses Socket 1156 while the i5-2400 uses Socket 1155.  They aren't compatible.

FWIW the i5-750 can be quite a good overclocker with good cooling.  While it's not really competitive with current top end CPU's, it's not terrible either.  The 2400 is not overclockable at all, really.

Win 10 will likely argue about activation if you change motherboard and your Windows is not Retail.

 

You can try this one though https://www.windowscentral.com/how-re-activate-windows-10-after-hardware-change
