Are CPU Plug And Play?

No. A CPU is not plug-and-play because you will need to purchase a new motherboard, PSU, and memory module for your CPU to work. Look at the back of the CPU box and see what socket type it requires. If you do not have that specific socket on your motherboard then that is the reason it won’t work.
Plug-and-play refers to devices like keyboards, mice, USB flash drives, etc., where one could simply plug them in without having to match any hardware settings (e.g., Set up device drivers).
