HP Proliant ML150 G3, Processor upgrade with non HP intel processors
Hi I am currently running 2 x Intel Xeon 5120 Dual core processors which were supplied with the system and am considering upgrading to 2x Intel Xeon Quad core E5320 processors. I have confirmed that the board I have is capable of accepting the upgrade but the cost of the upgrade kit from HP is more than I am willing to pay. I have sourced the Quad cores (Intel) from a non HP supplier and was hoping that you might advise me if there is any reason for the massive difference (AUD$2000) Is there a new VRM neededfor the upgrade? I cannot find any reference to it in the kit description on the HP website.
