As long as the CPU you are replacing and the new CPU use the same socket type, it shouldn't be an issue. Also, your cooling solution may factor in if you are unable to remount the cooler with the board installed (the case in some huge air coolers).

You should be able to, unless your cooler requires you to get at the backplate and you can't without taking the board out
