go to the motherboards manufactures site and look it up, it should also be in the manual.

If you flash your bios, it may work fine.  Give us a little more information.

What's your exact motherboard model?

What's your current CPU and new CPU?  Exact.

if the CPU would work with a flash of the bios it would say it on the website right on the compatibility list.
