If your board accepts the Xeon E5 2689, you don't need integrated graphics, and you have a cooler that will do the job with that hotter CPU, it would give you more cores, more cache, and slightly higher clock speed. So, yes. There should be a noticeable improvement.

If the upgrade is for gaming, those extra cores might make a big difference in modern thread-aware games. I have an aging Ph II x4 @3.4GHz AM3 platform that I dropped a old Ph II x6 @ 3.5GHz in. The 2 extra cores made a noticeable difference. If changing boards and CPU isn't costly for you, it might be worth it. The Intel platform from that era is even more capable than my AM3.

Find out what your mainboard supports...

Look at prices of I7-2600/2600K, compare to any compatible equivalent Xeon...(which gives no greater perfomrance than the i7 at the same clock speeds, so, no need to expend great effort searching for one if you can find a normal i7)

I'd be hesitant to sink much more than $30 for one, as the current AMazon asking prices for a 2600K at $100-$120 are ridiculous, as that perilously close to R5-2600 prices....and $40 above an R5-1600's prices.

I was thinking this would be a good route as well, especially if the lga2011 won't support the v4 2689:

But the best bang for the buck if you're replacing the motherboard is the Ryzen.
