ML310 G4 - Change CPU

Hi there


I have an older ML310 G4 Server, which is basically used in testing, nothing critical.


Currently this server has the factory Pentium D 945 3.4Ghz Dual Core CPU


My Question is will this server board handle a Core2Duo E7400 2.8Ghz processor??


I know the E7400 is just a desktop level CPU, but all I'm after is extra performance for testing inhouse.


I see the difference between the two boards is the Pentium D supports PLGA775 Sockets, vs the Core2Duo which supports LGA775 sockets. Is this an issue, many forums say this doesn't matter?


Can anyone confirm this replacement will work or am I wasting my time and the BIOS/Board won't support it?
