I got a good offer on 2 hexa core 3Ghz xeon cpus and thinking to replace my current quad core xeons. 
Technically the 2 hexa one are fully compatible with my system. So this means I can just simple drop them in the sockets and bob's my uncle? Or...

Anything I should be aware of?
Dell T5500 with Dual Hexa Xeon CPU 3Ghz, 32Gb ram
Amiga 1200 8Mb ram, 8Gb ssd
