ivy bridge cpu on sandy bridge motherboard

I am building a low budget gaming pc and i have a question, my motherboard is a MSI LGA1155/Intel H61/DDR3/A&GbE/MicroATX Motherboard H61M-P31 (W8). Since this is a sandy bridge mobo would i be able to put in an i5 or i7 ivy bridge? I dont have a sandy bridge cpu to update the bios so would an i5 or i7 work out of the box? sorry this has been posted before i just thought id ask about my specific mobo. thanks

  1. I wouldn't like to say 100%, but I would think you should be able to get into the BIOS to run the update with the Ivy Bridge processor installed.
