I personally wouldn't swap a 9980XE for Xeon W3235 or 3245 - you're giving up cores and frequency for extra memory bandwidth and ECC (but likely lower frequency memory as well).
Unless you have a specific need for the ECC and/or extra PCI-E lanes it doesn't make that much sense I think. If you need the extra cores for rendering or compute then really to get the additional performance from switching platforms you should go for the much higher core count CPU's.
But I would love to hear about how it goes, and getting it all set up and working with BS, something I would like to try sometime
