Proliant ML350 G3 - installing second CPU

Hello,

We have a Proliant ML350 G3 with a Xeon CPU on 2.8Ghz. I know that this server has the option for installing a second CPU on it. What I should be prepared of when installing the second CPU:

1. Do I need additional voltage regulator?
2. Do I have to expect OS issues as BSOD ?

Thank you,
