    not really (not dealing with OC'ing) pretty much you take out the old one, slap some thermal paste on the new one and put it in. Then boot the puppy up.

    Just make sure that your board can handle the faster speed...

    well stripe dont forget if the cpu's are at different FSB then you will need to adjust the timings in the bios.
