I have an A55 v40z, the 4x single core model, CG stepping. It wasn't until I
bought a pair of Opteron 855 chips that I realized that I can't drop in dual
core CPUs. That's rather lame.
Has anyone done an upgrade of these? The parts manuals suggest that I need to
change the CPU VRMs, the motherboard, the daughterboard, the RAM VRMs and
possibly the RAM. Of course, I need to swap the CPUs also.
This server is overloaded and I want to upgrade. I had my eye on a DL585 G2,
but want to make sure that it really is hopeless to upgrade this.
Can I just swap the CPUs and VRMs? Does anyone know?
