it is my opinion that:

1. if it's the same motherboard, it'll work.

2. If the motherboard is different (make or model) from your last board, it will not work.

Personally, give it a try, I don't think you can damage anything. I think the worst that would happen is that it would not boot or it would ask you to reinstall windows.
