upgrade CPU E7600 to E8600
I'm still using my late 2009 27" iMac for simple tasks.
The EMC 2309 was offered by Apple with either a E7600 or E8600 CPU (both Core 2 Duo) 3.06 or 3.33 GHz
Today the E8600 CPU chip is very cheap (about $30) I've read that it's about 20% faster than the E7600
As it was offered by Apple, and knowing that the processor is socked on these models. Is it possible to replace my E7600 by E8600?
I have not found an answer on the web.
Thank you in advance

thank you very much for your answers.
I don't matter about the amount of work, it's mostly for fun
If I try myself to change the CPU, is there a risk to ruin definitely the computer ?
Thank you !
Is this a good question?
