It is always advise that you make sure the bios is up to date prior to upgrading any processor.

Please note the upgrading from Xeon E5 -2620v4 8-core to 2x Xeon E5-2643v4 6-core will make DIMM slots 4 and 5 are not accessible due to heatsink size. The Xeon E5-2643v4 6-core is 130W processor and required bigger heatsink. In a 2 processor configuration, there are twelve (12) total available DIMM slots.

You can buy below below option processor kit(2)

HPE BL460c Gen9 Intel® Xeon® E5-2643v4 (3.4GHz/6-core/20MB/135W) FIO Processor Kit 819848-L21

HPE BL460c Gen9 Intel® Xeon® E5-2643v4 (3.4GHz/6-core/20MB/135W) FIO Processor Kit 819848-B21

You will find the same info in Server Quickspecs page # 3 - https://h20195.www2.hpe.com/v2/GetDocument.aspx?docname=c04380273

NOTE: DIMM slots 4 and 5 are not accessible when the E5-2699 v4, E5-2697 v4, E5-2697A v4, E5-2667 v4, E5-2643 v4, E5-2637 v4, E5-2699 v3, the E5-2697 v3, the E5-2643 v3, the E5-2637 v3, or the E5-2667 v3 is used. In a 2 processor configuration, there are twelve (12) total available DIMM slots.

Also, it is recommended to have the System ROM (BIOS) running latest whenever you are upgrading any hardware component especially processor or memories.
