Upgrade to Ivy Bridge CPU?

Texto:

Is it possible (or worthwhile) for one to upgrade the Sandy Bridge CPU currently in the EMC-2428 iMac to  Intel's newly released Ivy Bridge unit?

Whilst no doubt the physical dimensions of both processors would be the same, I worry that the unique architecture of Intel's so-called '3D-Transistor' may preclude the processor from being installed into pre-2012 machines. Is my concern founded? And should I even bother with the expenditure and the surgery on my iMac?

Feedback is appreciated in advance.
