Can I order this processor and install it or will there be an issue with compatibility? The server has not been updated since 2009 that is from when the motherboard is from. I know nothing about computers, I just know that I was told I need a stronger processor, and I have acess to the one listed above, can I just put it in or how do I need to go about this? Normally I would call someone or take it in but with the corona virus going on I am kinda on my own to figure it out. Please help me if you can, thank you.

You need to ask your motherboard manufacturer what processors their bios supports. If this processor is not listed, then, no, it will not work.

Thank you for the reply, I just found from the manufacture that the board used is Intel® Server Board S1200BTL, I having been googling but I havent yet found if it supports the one I want to use, do you know if there is a place where I can find that answer?
