The h61m is a different socket than the one for core2 duo, which is 775. It won't fit. Get a cheap dual core celeron 530 for the h61. Also be aware that many h61 boards will run ivy bridge cpus such as the 3220, but require a bios flash to work. Be careful to only flash the bios if needed for a new cpu; if you do it wrong, you could end up with a dead motherboard requiring a new bios chip or new board. Pci-e 3.1 only works with ivy bridge cpus on certain boards, such as the z77 models.
