Another member posted awhile back (another thread), that the main logic board between the Quad and Octo are the same P/N's, so it should be technically possible. The SMB is different, but might be able to update it (firmware). The associated cost might not be wonderful though.
Even if possible it is probably unlikely it will make financial sense. I wouldn't count on it as a future upgrade strategy.
It'll be nice if someone would post an image of the processor try from a Quad and a Octo. I'm wondering to myself are there some components missing, or are they physically different. It's kinda hard to imagine them, as I don't own either of the new MP's.
They are physically different, check out the illustrations in this manual.
