ML 350 G6 Processor Upgrade


I have a decommissioned HP Proliant ML350 G6 server with Intel E5620 and I was wondering if it is ok to replace the process with a non HP intel processor E5645 part number  BX80614E5645 or do I have to use HP Intel E5645 part number 638317-B21?

I know the HP part number is a kit with a heat sink and the intel part number is processor only.

Could I just by the Intel processor and reuse the HP heat sink or does the processor need to be an HP to work with the HP Proliant server?

In quickspecs show that  only Intel processor is compatible .
