Should there be some more processors in there ? Looking through the back posts it looks like a processor upgrade would require a bios upgrade too, which is probably not going to happen. So, does have anyone have a spare CPU card lying around. ? ( I have plenty of bitcoins if anyone is interested)

There is definitely a separate daughterboard that holds 2 CPUs... not
sure if it was a standard item that shipped with all systems even if you
just got 2 CPUs, or if it was an add-on option you got when you ordered
4 CPUs.
