I have a x79 system, with a Rampage IV Black Edition, and a Intel 4930k. I want to put a Xeon processor in, like the E5-2687W v2 8-core processor, or maybe even the 10-core Xeon for that chipset. How difficult will this be? Can I just swap em and double check BIOS settings, or will Clover get fussy and angry? Related note: what will happen if I throw in another 16gb of ram as well to make it a total of 32gb of ram? I use 8gb sticks.

Just wondering if I should even set my sights on an upgraded processor. It would be awesome if it worked, because I have a GTX 1080, and with an 8-core and 32gb of RAM, it would be a significant upgrade.

Thanks
