Xeon E3-1220LV2 upgrade on G1610T Gen 8 Microserver

[ Edited ]

Hi, I am trying to see if the new G8 microservers have any CPU whitelisting in the BIOS.  I am hoping to pick one of these up and upgrade the CPU to a E3-1220LV2.  So my question is two-fold.  First, will this work?  I am not concerned about the configuration being officially supported.  If not, would a 35 Watt Xeon E3 with a GPU work?  I am not sure if on this motherboard the CPU is required to have an integrated GPU on die or not with the Matrox controller.

As far as I know it will work, but there may be a BIOS issue with adding a chip with gpu as the graphics are run through the matrox chip on the iLO.  Check this blog out, this guy is my hero: http://b3n.org/installed-xeon-e3-1230v2-in-gen8-hp-microserver/

Sweet, thanks for the link. I actually would prefer to use a non-GPU version of the chip to save a few watts
