What's the difference between a Dell E5504 and an HP E5504 processor?

I was given a Dell Precision T7500 to use as a server, it presently has an E5504 processor and since the server will be doing multiple live transcoding of video I'm planning on adding a second processor to it. I can get another E5504 but it's labeled as HP for about $160, or I can get a Dell E5504 (as far as I can see all the specs are the same) for about $500.

Is there a true difference or will the HP work in my Dell box? The box is already out of warranty, thus if that's the only issue I'll go for the cheaper version but if the HP will make my system go all mushroom-cloudy then I'll spring for the Dell.

Nothing, we only manufacturered one Intel® Xeon® E5504 with a single stepping (D0). http://ark.intel.com/products/40711/Intel-Xeon-Processo...

At times you may see the same processor model have different stepping. When you put a two processors together on a board you want to match the same stepping and this lead people to want one stepping over the other but in this case they all have the same stepping.
