Question about Mixing E series and X series Intel cpu's in a 2012 r2 hyper-v cluster

Hello,

 I had a quick question on a cluster. Since this is a production cluster I wanted to double check for clarification.  Currently have a 3 node 2012 R2 hyper-v cluster. The servers are all Dell R610's with Dual Intel E5540 processors.  I wanting to introduce a 4th node into the cluster only I was thinking of doing an R610 with Dual X5570 processors for a little more power.  My questions is, since these are all R610's and the processors are all from the same generation/release date, would I still have to go through and mark the checkbox on all the VM's for the "migrate to a physical computer with a different processor version"?  Or since they are the sam Generation would everything work as normal.  Any other pitfalls I'm missing?

 Thanks.

Thanks.  So just to verify I can add in the R610 server with the Xseries cpu's to the cluster and not have to manually check all the VM's on the other three servers with the "migrate to a different cpu" checkbox?
