    i am wondering can i do that? the board support E5-26xx V1 & V2, so can i use E5-46xx V2? or even E7 version? on intel says they all LGA2011, and the E5-4xxx = 4P and E7 = higher server grade???

    E5-46xx work fine on most dual socket boards, E7's are physically and electrically incompatible.

    E5-4600 and E5-4600 V2 are Socket R0 chips. All E7 V2/V3/V4 Xeons are Socket R1 chips. This will be changing with Skylake-EP and the LGA3647 socket, which will be common to all E5-2600V5/E5-4600V5/E7-4600V5/E7-8800V5 chips, as well as the V6 versions of those chips. Intel will just neuter down the features on the common dies (LCC/MCC/HCC) to make the lower end chips as they've always done.
