Precision 530 processor upgrade

This question is not answered

Hi All

The .subject is  currently a dual XEON 1.4G box and I want to go faster.  I found matched CPU's ( 2800DP/512L2/400/1.5V - SL6WA ) and installed.  Box booted but complained about the CPU stepping.  Soooo, my question is - what is the fastest CPU I can use in this box and what is the ID or core type?

 

Thanks!

  • Hi, I think the fastest processor you can use is the Xeon (Foster) 2 GHz (Part number: RN80528KC041G0K). Later versions (MP an DP) are probably not suitable. Later versions of the 530 were able to use faster processors but I suspect yours is and early version.
