    People have done it on iMac models that have socketed CPU's there is surely multiple threads on here somewhere.

    I believe it's not just enough for the socket type to match there will be other factors that will come into play. But that's best left to the people that have done this sort of upgrade and no more than me.

    Might want to refer to this document:

    I would make sure to read the comments section at the bottom of the page that refers to the reapplication of the thermal paste. Hope this helps.
