  • Doubtful.  The BIOS probably isn't programmed to accept it and i'm not sure the chipset is capable of utilizing a Xeon.  Xeon processors generally use business or industrial class chipsets from intel

    There are Likely Physical Barriers to getting the Xeon into the Core I3 socket.

    Then there are pins that have to be swapped
    via flex circuit Just like the 771 to 775 mod.
