Well... we need to know your motherboard to check compatibility of the X4 630 but guessing that the X6 1100T is supported, the X4 630 will be at a minimum supported with a BIOS update.

No harm in trying to get it to fit... Just don't force it to fit :D 

If your lucky, it'll boot without issues or it won't boot at all with no harm no foul. Worse case... it damages the CPU (very unlikely though :)  ).

Typically, BIOS flashing is straight forward, as long as you follow the requirements for your motherboard manufacturer. I only recommend flashing through the BIOS... DO NOT use a Windows based program.
