dl385 g2 upgrade to Quad core

we have a dl385 g2 with dual core, and want to upgrade them to quade core

i have run the latest firmware and ROM paq update.

we have new heatsinks and Voltage regulators.

bu as we replace the CPU's and boot, we only get the fans coming on all green lights but do not get any further than that no post.

any ideas? we have tried 4 CPU's and all the same issue. soon as we replace the old cpus it works fine

cheers

Check if knew CPU are compatible with your D, than check PPM.

Hi,

What is the specification of the current dual core and the new quad core (speed and series)?

Re: dl385 g2 upgrade to Quad core

I have 1 DL385G2 with 2* Opteron 2220 installed. If I want to upgrade to 2* Opteron 2352, do I need to change to VRM Kit also? Please advise, thanks. Bing.
