Yes, the S30 FRU PN 03T8420 can, in general, use Xeon v2 processors, and specifically it can use the E5-2650 v2.

Correction, further review of that system board shows it to be a Sandy Bridge based board, and you're looking at an Ivy Bridge chip. Those would not be compatible. The newer Ivy Bridge boards are usually backwards compatible with Sandy Bridge processors, but the older Sandy Bridge boards cannot handle the newer v2 processors.

 

Apologies for the mistake!
