I currently have a Generation 5 HP Proliant ML350 server and it has only a dual core processor installed. I have a couple of Intel XEON X5472 quadcore processors from another project I parted out. I'm wondering if these processors will work in my ML350?
All I can find is '54xx' processors are supported, but I do not see my particular processors listed anywhere as being compatible.
Can someone tell me if they should work or not? Would I need to update the BIOS before doing so, if they will work?

Reading this, I would have to say no, from an official standpoint. Since they are from the same series of chips, I would try it anyway. If it works, it will probably run at a lower clock speed due to the FSB though. Looks like that system is a 1333fsb, the CPU's are 1600. They would only run at like 2.5ghz, if they run at all.
