No.

To do Multi-Processor, all processors have to be a match, in both class, speed and cache.

Re: HP LH4 CPU dual 550 + 500 ?

hmm i got the machine yesterday,

there are 2 cpu's in it, i think 1 with 1mb cach and the other 512kb and the system is running ok thoug.

also can i mount any P3 xeon 550 1m cpu in the machine ? or does have to be some sort of special HP only cpu upgrade kit ?

i've seen some p3's 550 xeon's on ebay and i wonder if i can just place those cpu's in my machine, if the VRM's let me

If my memory of LH4 serves me right, you need the appropriate Slot1 CPU and VRM pair.

And I'm not 100% sure on the cache thing. I thought they had to be the same, but *shrug*, I've not added a CPU to an LH4 for a few years now..
