The E5-2687W CPU's were only officially supported and qualified on the ThinkStation D30.  I honestly don't think these CPU's will even work on a C30 platform, though I don't think I've actually physically tried this.  Also, I don't think I'd recommend even trying this in the first place as those CPU's are 150W processors and would require the larger heatsinks to adequately cool those processors, which you wouldn't be able to install in the C30.
