Given that ASRock's page for it mentions and overclocking mode which generates more heat I'd imagine it won't be a problem.

If this is some sort of retro gaming build then wouldn't an E8400 or similar be easier? Not many games of that era used four cores.

I'm just trying to get the most out of a very old system for the least amount of money.

How much are you planning to spend? You can buy complete newer systems like Sandy Bridge Pentiums for £50-60.

Mod the socket? Leg pull.

The 771 to 775 mod requires a connection shifting sticker, and either the blocking pieces of the socket removed or the CPU notched to fit - may also require a microcode mod in the BIOS for full identification & support

Aha, found it http://www.delidded.com/how-to-update-cpu-microcode-in-ami-bios/

chances of success? 3%... but anyways, I'm using a full power CPU in a microserver, with the original heatsink ( 35 W ) new cpu 65 W ...BUT I never intend for it to be fully loaded ?
Your increase in TDP is much smaller 105-120 so I wouldn't really see that as much of a barrier at all, much less than modding the CPU oO, the socket oOoO and bios mods oO, oO,:{
