R610 Upgrade to X5675?

Hello, I'm looking to update the procs in my R610 (Generation 1) to X5675 (95W). Now i know I cannot do the 130W chips, but will this work ok for me, using the same heatsinks as my existing E5504?

Thank you in advance!

Stevew8841,

I am quite certain  you can use the existing heatsink as the X5675 processor is compatible with R610. However, you can also make use of the heatsink that comes with the new processor. Make sure that you order the processor kit that comes along with thermal paste as well; else have the paste handy.
