    1| Nope. The platform is generations apart and the socket has changed since the 2nd generation of Intel's cor I processors.
    2| The IMC(Integrated Memory Controller) will not support the new ram.

    Essentially you're looking at a complete rebuild if you want to work with that board = new CPU, ram(and the board) and judging from the age of your processor a new case+PSU as well.
