    Both motherboards are H61, they will work no diffrent from eachother. The LGA775 fan will NOT work with the new board, unless its a newer aftermarket fan.

    Yes, it will work, it's a sandybridge cpu, no need for bios update.
    Both motherboards are about the same quality/specs.
    You'll have to buy a new cooler.
    Also check if the used cpu is really worth it vs retail prices.
  3. thanks guys
    so there is no chance to get the old fan working on the new system ?
  4. Nope.
