Hello, I have a Dell Precision 690 Workstation with a 2 GHZ Xeon 5130 processor in slot 0. I found a place to buy a second Xeon 5130 processor with a heat sink but I can't find what kind of Voltage Regulator Module I need to buy in order to facilitate the running of both processors. Can anybody help me?

Well I found this link in Dell support
I dont see a VRM shown on motherboard in there.
I am thinking that it has a built in VRM?
I also could not find a VRM on ebay or google.
If it needed one it would be for sale wouldnt it?
Internet is mainly used for selling...
Try asking question and searching Dell user forums on their support page.
The guys there live for Dells
Nice tower by the way. I have a precision 450 and I am jealous LOL

Thanks for the reply. I now have another processor on order. I'll be sure to post how things go when I plug it in.
