Yes !

HPZ620 workstation LGA2011 / C602chipset. Xeon E5-1620 3.60GHZ quad-core. GPU with heat sink instead of fan: MSI Nvidia N8400GS-D512H (MassCore has had some issues with Nvidia cards - we'll see what happens when Masscore is installed... note, Quadro is also Nvidia)

Though, sounds like Pyramix will not support 12 cores (2x Hexa-core). Please Read Here:

Also note that the E5-16xx can not use Twin CPU. Xeon E5-26xx will operate with single or Twin processor.
Z620 will need the riser board option for twin CPU, Z820 already has on board.

However if Pyramix limit is 8 cores, a single octacore CPU might be more cost effective than two quad. Power consumption, TDP, processor efficiency, etc. is a good question to put out there in regards to single vs twin CPU. More total RAM would be available in Twin CPU but the primary processor has 8 memory slots already...

This may be a discussion better served in the Hardware Topic Forum.
