S5000PSL (Non R) & Xeon 5300 on theoretically unsupported PBA

sorry for the stupid question but i thought someone here might have an answer...


So I've recently acquired an old SC5400 with an S5000PSL -SAS with PBA D44749-801.


The official Xeon 5300 compatibility list says I'd need D44749-803 to run any Quad Core CPU (ie Xeon 5300) on it.


Now it happens that i have another Server with a Xeon L5345 here and thought I'd invest the 5 minutes to test it - and it worked?


Don't misunderstand me I'm happy (saves me from buying a new Board) but I wonder which risks I'll be running (besides it not being a supported configuration)...


Are there any problems to expect (data faults, glitches, early death of components due to overstressed conductors or I don't know what?)


Does anyone have any info on this?
