Upgrade BL685 G5 to Istanbul 6-core processors

Is it supported to upgrade a BL685 G5 server with the AMD Istanbul 6-core processors (8400 series)?

The Istanbul processors are supported in the Socket-F architecture used in the BL685 G5, but I need to know if this is supported by HP.

None of the Istanbul processors are listed as options in the Quickspecs. Can the options listed for the BL685 G6 be used in the BL685 G5?

I have heard there is a upgrade kit for the G5 servers. I would call HP support to get more information about it and confirm.
