Is a new VRM required for a processor upgrade on my ML570 G2?

Hi everyone,

I currently have a Proliant ML570 G2 with 4x 2.0GHz Xeon MP processors.

I was wondering about the following reguarding upgrading to the 3.0GHz/4MB Xeon MP processors:

a. Do I need a new VRM, or can I use the current ones?
b. Can I re-use my current heatsinks?
c. If I don't need a new VRM, and I can re-use the heatsinks, all I need is 4 3.0GHz Xeon MP processors, correct?

Thanks!

Dennis
