Finding T5500 motherboard part number

Jump to solution

I'm in the market for a CPU upgrade for my T5500. However, there are apparently some motherboards that can only take the older Nehalem Xeons. How do I find the motherboard part number? I've tried looking up the serial number, but can't find a P/N for the motherboard in the system configuration.

Look on the board near the memory sockets - it'll start with DP/N... or CN ...

The number is near the cmos battery and ram slots.

Given my age and its size it might as well be invisible.

The trick is to take a picture with your smart phone and zoom in.

CRH6C is what I've got. Looks like I've got a Westmere compatible board.
