I'm trying to install two Quad-Core Intel Xeon E5430 CPUs in an IBM x3400 with an IBM M97IP motherboard.
When I turn the power on, it takes approx. 3 sec. then the fan stops and nothing happens. After approx. 10 sec. an LED on the motherboard indicates failure of the CPU2 slot. Even if I swap the CPUs, it still indicates failure of the CPU2 slot. Both CPUs work individually when I start the server in either CPU1 or CPU2 slot.
I am running this server with two 835W power supply and 8 x Qimonda 2GB 2RX4 Fully Buffered ECC DDR2-667.
