I've used 2 x E5-4650 v3 QS in a SM X11DRi mobo before. Not sure if HP puts any restrictions in their BIOS or mobo design. They seem to spend so much engineering resources to design restrictions.

They generally work just fine. Even single socket boards support it. People seldom do it however on account of the price premium you usually pay for CPUs with quad socket support.
