Re: Swap CPU between Proliant 5500 & 7000

Hi Manoj,

May I know the reason for swapping the CPU's. You can swap the CPU's without any issues but the system performance may vary. Wat is the os?

Re: Swap CPU between Proliant 5500 & 7000

Hi Manoj,

Here are the spare part numbers for the Proliant 7000 and the Proliant 5500 Xeon models.

Proliant 7000
=============
Processor with 2-MB Cache and Heatpipe, 500-MHz PIII Xeon (Spare Part=122219-001)

Processor Power Module Board (Spare Part=312257-001)

Proliant 5500
=============
500 MHz 2MB L2 Cache Pentium III Xeon Processor with Heatsink (Spare Part =122637-001)

Processor Power Module (PII/III) (Spare Part=328701-001)

I'm not sure if the heatsink shape and size is the only difference on the CPU side but the Processor Power Modules are certainly different.

I would warn against swapping these components in case of permanent damage.

Regards,

Brian
