HP Z600 Intel Chipset - how to find revision

I have a HP Z600 (KK549ET/ABU) and wish to add a single 8GB REGISTERED DIMM as memory.
The Kingston site says this machine requires C2 revision of Intel 5520 chipset.

http://www.kingston.com/us/memory/search/Default.aspx?DeviceType=1&Mfr=HEW&Line=Workstation&Model=55070

My question is, how can I tell which revision this motherboard has installed as when I install the DIMM in the socket (CPU0, DIMM1 socket), I get 5 beeps and red light which seems to indicate a problem with the memory - presumably if the C2 revision is not installed, the memory will be rejected.

Thanks
BT

Check the BIOS Boot Block date in the System Setup menu
Compare with the date list here to determine if you have B3 or C2
