Super Micro has no CPU support list that I could find for this board, nor in the manual. It may take a call or email to them to find out for sure.
I would be careful buying such used item from an eBay seller, check their return policies and reviews first.

Overall, from what little info I could find, it seems the 3,2GHz Xeons will work, but just a guess.

Most sellers on Ebay will not let you return a cpu just because it is not supported by the motherboard. I would not buy them unless you know they will work on your board. Google your board and
see what comes up.

But I`m sure Gary has already done that.
