I have a ECS H61H2-CM 1.0 mothboard with currently a Intel Pentium G630 2.7 GHz processor. The board has an LGA 1155 socket. The m.b. spec says this board will take Core i5, Core i3, Celeron ... etc. processors. I am looking to upgrade the processor to an i5-3470, but it runs at 3.2GHz whereas the current processor is 2.7 GHz. Can I do this upgrade?
