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

Yeah, true.

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.
