CPU and motherboard compatibility

So im thinking about buying a server.

The CPU's im looking at are the Xeon E5 2660 8 cores, 16 threads at 2.2-3 GHz. The reason why im looking at these is becasue I think I can get them pretty cheap (200 ea second hand)

The motherboard im looking at is the Supermicro X10DRL-i dual socket board.

The other parts of the system I havn't looked at but am sure they are trivial

Memory: ECC 16GB per CPU at the rated speeds for the motherboard.

PSU: Probably about 450 W should be heaps enough (100W per CPU I believe)

Storage: 1TB Disk drive, 250 GB SSD

 

The main concern here is the CPU and motherboard compatibility between CPUs and motherboard, I cant find the motherboard on pc part picker, from what i've read the motherboard is LGA 2011 so it should be fine with the CPUs but I wanted to check with you guys. So what do you think? good plan? not compatible?

would be a better idea to check the motherboard's website for the compatibility list for something that is not common (dual socket motherboard), pcpartpicker can be inaccurate at times

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Oh bugger, after looking at the website it looks like it only supports E5 2600 family v3/4 the CPU im looking at is v1 I think
