    If your i3 processor is not -2xxx you must change motherboard too, and if unlucky HDD and DVD drive as well.
    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.

    Watercooling is not needed, but you'd better get a heatsink for your 2500k so you can overclock more.
    Download CPU-Z to check your motherboard and CPU.
