I have an HP ML350 G5 server with a single Intel 5130 dual core Xeon installed. Is it possible to upgrade it to a dual processor system? I've looked at the quickspecs and spent a couple of hours searching online but haven't been able to find a conclusive answer.
Is it as simple as purchasing, for example, two Xeon E5405's and a VRM, or are there caveats I need to watch out for?
Additionally, the quickspecs shows the 5130 supporting up to 16 GB of RAM, but quad core models support up to 32 GB. The Intel ARK for the 5000Z chipset says it supports a total of 16 GB of RAM (but it doesn't specify if it is per processor or not).
Ultimately, I would like to upgrade from the existing Xeon 5130 with 4 GB of RAM to two Xeon 5405's with 32 GB of RAM. Is it possible?
