So recently, I was looking into upgrading my i5-2400 into a i7-2600, I know how too do it physically, (take the old cpu out and replace it with the new one) but, I dont know if I have too do anything else after I replace it. I feel like, you have too do something else after you replace it, or will it just work right away? Im new too this computer stuff so I might sound like a retard..

System specs:

i5-2400
gtx 1050ti
8gb ram
cx450 psu
optiplex 390
0M5DCD mobo
