DL580G2 Multi-Processing vs Single Processor

I have a DL580 G2 Server with 4 CPUs 3.0 MHz, still wanted to downgrad to one CPU. The HP Support Center told me, it´s unsupported but not why!
There are single processor DL580G2 servers available with 2.2 MHz and 2.0 MHz CPUs. What´s different between this processors?
Why do HP support this 3.0 MHz CPU only in pairs?

Can´t find anything about this in the web (HP, intel, ...), any whitepapers or technical papers available discribing this problem?

In my mind this CPUs are all out of the same Intel XEON MP family...

thx for answers
