HP Proliant DL 165 won't boot after CPU upgrade

I have a DL 165 I purchased off of Ebay, I decided to upgrade the CPUs in the machine to the 6276's which show compatible on the spec sheet from HP's website but the machine will not POST. The monitor doens't even turn on. I'm told this may be due to needed a new BIOS/Firmware upgrade but these are behind a paywall. Since I'm just a home user, I don't believe I should need a contract or warranty for a 3.8MB file.

Is there another way to get this file? SP59838.exe

Perhaps Im going about this all wrong and there's something else I need to do to get these processors to boot the machine?
