SL230s/SL250s/SL270s Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge Motherboard Upgrade

I'm curious if anyone out there has ever attempted to swap out the motherboard on SL2x0 Gen8 server from the original Sandy Bridge versions that support the E5-2600 processors to the newer Ivy Bridge (IVB) version that supports the newer E5-2600 v2 processors.  Current HPE part numbers are similar, but I'm not sure if the IVB version (802612-001) is a drop-in replacement for the SB version (802611-001).

Thoughts?

Hi,

As far as I know, 802612-001 is an updated system board which supports Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge both processors.

802611-001 System I/O board (motherboard) - Supports select E5 (Sandy Bridge EP) processors
802612-001 System I/O board (motherboard) - Supports select E5 V2 (Ivy Bridge EP) processors

If you see this example 686857-B21, this server has 802612-001 board but supports Sandy Bridge prc.

Thank You!

Thank you so much for the insight.  That gives me a much better comfort level that the swap will work well.
