you can expect it to work right away as long as the motherboard supports the new cpu.

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.
