Will this processor work with this mobo?
I want to upgrade.
No, the xeon chips on 1151 can only be on Cxxx chipsets.
That is what I thought.
So, if I go with this, will I have to get new RAM as well?
I don't think so, but why not use an ix processor?
Well, I have a b150 lga 1151 mobo, I want an i7, just not it's price
A 6700 (not k) would be cheaper than the xeon+mobo
No. You can't use a consumer chipset anymore with Xeons.
Thought so, there isn't any tricks like bios downgrades I could do?
Nope, maybe if you could make your BIOS somehow it might have a chance of working but outside of that there is no chance of getting it to work.
