PE2900 new processor


In October 2006, I bought two PowerEdge 2900s, each of them has one Intel Xeon 5160, 3 GHz Dual Core Processor.  I would like to move the processor from one 2900 into the other one so it has two, and buy a new processor (and heat sink, I think) to put in the first one.

What would be the best option for the new processor kit?

Re: PE2900 new processor

I would suggest either Dell spare parts or Ebay. Make sure the stepping codes of the CPU's match, Google CPUz, its a free program you can download and run on each server and it will give you the stepping codes of the CPU.
