Moving VM server to new host cluster

I need to move VM servers to a new host cluster in vCenter. The host that the vm servers are on has a different processor then the one I'd like to move them to. What can I do to keep issues at bay before and after the move?

If you have EVC enabled, on the Host Servers, Live Migration (vMotion) will not be an issue, and will take care of the move.

If you have no EVC, no vMotion, a cold migration. e.g. when the Guest VM is off, will have no issues.

It appears that the cluster I want to move the vm servers to don't have EVC enable. The one that they are living on now does. It looks like I have some work to do.
