DL580 G5 Processor Upgrade

Gents,

I know you have probably heard this before in other post but i am looking for a specific yes or now anwser if at all possible.

I have just brought a DL580 G5 with the model number 418315-421. I has Dual, Dual Core Processors in it. The vendor of the software which will be running on the box has now instructed me that they recommend dual, quad core 5355's processor instead.

Would this be just a simple case of swaping out the processors for this specific which i have already brought.
i.e. Will the socket and chip set support this?

Many Thanks for you time.

Hi, 418315-421 model uses system board: 407749-001, which supports Intel Xeon 50xx and 51xx processors.
For quad-core (Xeon 53xx) you need 436526-001 motherboard.

Sorry about that it is the DL380 G5, keep miss typing it by accident.

Thanks for your anwser so quickly, i have also had this confirmed by our onsite HP team.

Looks like we need to by a new server completed.
