Adding 2nd CPU to Dell PE2950

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am getting a used Dell PE2950, service tag [ADMIN NOTE: Service Tag removed per privacy policy]. Originally, and still, this has one Xeon E5345 quad core processor. I'm going to buy another matching processor and heatsink, but I can't seem to find out how to mount the new heatsink to the motherboard. Is there a part number for the hardware to mount it? Is the mount built-in to the motherboard somehow, even on 1 CPU systems (I don't have it in hand just yet, will be picking it up Friday).

All you need is to drop in the CPU by matching the two notches on top, then put the heatsink on top and lock it in.
