Motherboard Replacement - 8000 --> 8200 Elite SFF

HP Recommended
HP Compaq 8000 Elite SFF
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Due to electric charge, my 8000 elite sff became HOSED. I replaced the PSU and replaced the Motherboard.  Awaiting on a new CPU.  I upgraded to a 8200 Elite SFF MB and am getting an Intel Core i5-3570 3.40GHz Quad-Core CPU Processor,

Is the system gonna go bonkers when I boot it up?  Any hints.  

 

Note the machine I bought used and it came with no disks.  I am running it from an SSD and also have the OS & all other system files on another HDD,

From other posts I have read, it appears there is a chance the OS will choke.  TIA

Advice appreciated,

Hi:

 

The system isn't going to work at all with an  i5-3570 processor.

 

The best processor you can install in an 8200 Elite motherboard is the i7-2600.

 

See the Intel specs on the Q67 chipset...

 

Upgrading Desktop Boards to 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors

 

NoteFor desktop boards based on the Intel® Q67 Express Chipset, Intel® Q65 Express Chipset, or Intel® B65 Express Chipset, upgrading from a 2nd Generation to a 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ Processor isn't possible.
