    Poweredge 1800 Compat CPU 3.6Ghz or similar

    Having spent some serious time with the existing server I've realised that the existence of a second core could well use populating to help carry some of the load, especially when it comes to some of the stuff I was expecting of it.

    At the moment we have a single Xeon 2800 MHz CPU in there and I'd like to try and get my hands on a couple of 3.6Ghz units with heatsinks to replace it or at least another 2.8Ghz to match the existing one.

    If anyone has any of these or can point me in the right direction it'd be a big help... I'm not entirely sure re: compatability so I've no idea if an HP branded unit would work in this thing or not... guidance from those in the know would be good...

    Also, it's out of warranty so I can install this myself so no worries there.

    Thanks in advance...

    It looks as if the 1800 does not need VRMs for extra CPUs so any compatible processor should work. The main concern would be the heatsink as this may be specially shaped and sized to fit properly beside the other cpu and not impede air flow.

    Looks like the 2.8 is avalible in the US Dell : Dell Xeon 2.8 GHz Processor - Second Processor for Dell PowerEdge 1800 Server : Processors : Small & Medium Business from Dell.

    Personally I would try Ebay:
    BRAND NEW Dell PowerEdge 840 1800 CPU Heatsink KJ582 - eBay (item 290231034469 end time Jul-14-08 20:35:16 PDT)
    Dell Poweredge 1800 CPU Shroud / Fan __________ F3172 - eBay (item 300222716002 end time Jul-05-08 15:27:53 PDT)

    Try asking ICT-Direct for spares. They have quite a lot of processors and RAM etc from old Dell kit.

    @kmount... thanks for passing that on

    @DB... thanks for that info too... Just been chatting to them and they're off hunting for me now. Can't help thinking I should have looked there before I even started this whole upgrade routine... Ah well.


    Edit... sorry... tired... not reading straight.
