can i put other itanium CPU on rx1600?

Hey,

There are so many used Itanium CPUs sold on the second hand market and they are dirt cheap. I am just wondering if i can replace my 1.0G 1.5M CPU with a better one, say, 1.5G or 1.3G.

I understand this is not listed in HP's manual, they only say it can support 1.0G, but Did anyone ever try it and could you share your experience?

Thank you!

The rx1620 actually supported 1.3 GHz CPUs. At one level that suggests that stuffing 1.3's into your rx1600 is plausible, but frankly, I think you would be better off finding an rx1620.

I don't think that 1.5 GHz processors were ever supported in the rx1620, so I would be very suspicious of the thermals matching with 1.5s in an rx1600.
