I want to know what chipsets they will be backwards compatiable with. And what kind of Power delivery the board needs min. to support one.
It will be good if all I need is a BIOS Flash to get these running.

You mean 8 threads, since Core i7 uses 4 cores and 8 threads.

If the hexcores are quick enough, you can probably get away with 6 threads.
