ProLiant ML310e Gen8 v2 CPU Upgrade

Is there a BIOS restriction preventing me from upgrading my entry level ProLiant ML310e Gen8 v2 CPU from a i3-4130 to a Intel Xeon E3-1220 v3 ?

Based on the specs sheet for this server, the above Xeon processor is compataible. However, i recently installed the mentioned Xeon and my system is failing to boot. The system POST then crashes to black screen when iniatilizing processor without any warning tones.

I upgraded to latest BIOS and the issue persists

System ROM P78 03/28/2014

Which brands memory is it? Is it the same memory you were using earlier with the old processor without any problems?

No. I bought KIngston ECC RAM from Newegg. Cost me 200 bucks at the time
