I have dual-400's and 2 gig ram in my U2 (works great!).  Just be sure 
to update the firmware before installing the 400 cpu's. 

Lionel sent this link out just a message or two ago - for U2 firmware...


The only problem with an ultra-2 is the onboard scsi is a little slow, especially if you disk mirroring.  
You are better to use a couple of nice external disk chassis with a couple of sunswift cards.

The 450's won't work as they have a heat sink on both sides, and won't physically fit (afaik)
