Will i7 3930 work in a Dual Socket LGA 2011 MB?

Can I get a pair of i7 3930 Sandy Bridge Six-Core Processors to work and play well in an LGA 2011 Dual Socket MB or can only Xeon chips work in it?

Like this one:

Also will Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit handle both CPUs with any techicnal conflicts or administrative licensing agreement issues?

thanks in advance.

  1. I'd imagine that it wouldn't because first of all it doesn't have the same chipset that an i7 would be equipped with. Second of all, there's a review about the motherboard that says two i7-3960X CPUs will not work. So your 3930Ks shouldn't work either.
