There are CPU modules on the O2K node boards (they are called HIMMs
IIRC), but I dont think they are field replaceable. We never replaced
them on the 32p O2K we had, we just replaced node boards.
Origin 3000 on the other hand *is* field upgradable, the CPUs are on
carrier boards (PIMMs), and you can purchase the CPUs fairly easily.
