Default Upgrade 4.1 Mac Pro to 5.1?

I'm going to 'upgrade' from my current setup (see sig), to a PT10 HDX and to PT11 when it becomes available. On the qualified computers for PT11 it's got Mac Pro Early 2009 4.1 Nehalem in italics indicating it's qualification is pending further testing. I'm considering 'upgrading' my puter to a 5.1 boot rom and installing a couple of 3.33ghz X5680's and compatible memory (24gig 1333 ECC). Here is the link on how to do this, and I'm aware of the IHS issue on dual proc MP's

Mac Pro Firmware Upgrade Utility Released

It seems like a 'no-brainer' to extend the life of my Mac Pro and make it more compatible with PT11 for quite awhile.

What do you think?
Mac Pro 6.1, E5-2690 V2 10 core 3.0G, 32gig 1866 memory, 512G PCIe system drive, 2 1T data drives in Thunderbolt enclosure, OSX 10.10.5, Twin Raven MTi's, Apollo 8 TB, 2 UAD2 Satellite Octo Thunderbolt, RME ADI-4 DD, Neve 5012, 5043, Bricasti M7, 2 PCM 92's, M350, Pro Tools 12.4 HD, PreSonus Studio One 3.5, Logic X, DynAudio BM6 MK 3, BM14S, a bunch of cool mics...1 damned iLok2.
