ML350p Gen8, is PSU large enough for dual CPU's?

Hi. I have a ML350p Gen 8 with a single E5-2609 CPU (which makes such a great machine rather useless) and a 430 watt PSU. Does the small PSU pose any restrictions on what CPU's I can put in it? Preferably, I would like to get a couple of E5-2670 v2's. I don't really need any other hardware installed, besides the memory modules and a single SSD.

Also, would it be okay to remove the air baffle and use a couple of of the shelf heatsinks, or do I need to get original HP ones?

Thanks.

Please use the online HPE Power Advisor to enter your exact configuration and you'll be able to obtain your answer. I threw a quick (estimated) config together with your info and it indicated that a single 460W power supply would NOT be sufficient.

That is really, really sweet. Thanks a lot. Guess it will be a couple of 2630's or 2640's then.
