    No u cant it obvious dude it ll be mismatch out of sync it shud be 2.12ghz and 2.13ghz or 2.00ghz and 2ghz .its same way u want to sli/croosfire with 2 different graphic card models. it has to be matched for being pair as server
  2. Some can work together, it depends on the CPU and motherboard BIOS:

    Also, next time please provide supporting information please:

    Make
    Model
    Motherboard
    CPU make/model
  3. Definitely, include more information.

    Possibly, depending on what processors you have. For Xeons, there are many constraints, but matched speed is NOT one of them. The Intel Xeon processors can use two different speeds under certain circumstances outlined on page 25-26 here: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/xeon/xeon-5500-vol-1-datasheet.html

    Possible yes, but bad form to do so. More importantly, you want the model numbers to match.

    Yup, that is one of the many requirements. I do not suggest mixing them, just answering OP question if it can be done -- it can if all requirements are met. I would not consider it for a server that is important to me, but would for something to just play with.
