Which quad-core procs can I put into a DL380 G5??

We presently have a DL380 G5 with 2 Xeon 5150 processors.

Its motherboard part is 436526-001.

Can I put in a Xeon 54xx quad-core or only a Xeon 53xx quad-core??

If yes about the Xeon 54xx, what is the part number??

Thank you, Tom

Can I safely assume that the following *dual* core procs are also compatible with this system board??

Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor X5270 (3.50 GHz, 80 Watts, 1333 FSB) 484311-B21
Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor X5260 (3.33 GHz, 80 Watts, 1333 FSB) 461461-B21
Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor L5240 (3.00 GHz, 40 Watts, 1333 FSB)
461463-B21
Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor E5205 (1.86 GHz, 65 Watts, 1066 FSB)
461465-B21

yes
because your System Board: 436526-001
it is Quad-Core System Board which means It supports all Quad and Dual Core Procs

in the other hand when someone has a Dual Core System Board and wants to update to Quad that person needs not only needs to get a new Proc he needs also a New system Board

but this is not case you got it quad-core and Dual core capable

What level of performance increase do you expect to see? I've been searching but have not been successful in getting detailed information. It appears the gain will depend on whether the apps are multi-threaded.

Thank,

I'm not expecting any huge performance gains, only the ability to run more VMs with more cores as I gradually add memory over time.

I now need to find out if we need thermal grease or not, none was included in the processor installation kit...

Thank you, Tom
