Mixing processors of different steppings but the same model (as per CPUID instruction) is supported. You may want to put the CPU with lower stepping (SLANW) in the 1st socket.
I have the same question, with the same cpus (E5410, one step C0 and other E0) but with a mobo intel S5000vsasatar, its safe to use cpus of diferent steping on this mobo? and where can i get that kind of info? thaks and sorry about my english
Anybody can help please? thks
As a reference, please refer to the S5000pal TPS, page 25/112
All the best,
OK, but the link does not work, and my mobo is an s5000vsa not and s5000pal, anyway i found this link for the vsa model :
http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s5000vsa/sb/d36978010_s5000vsa_tps_r1_8.pdf but dont work, i think the "download.intel.com" domain is down, there are any mirror avaiable?
thks asn sorry about my english
OK, the domain download.intel.com is back, i get the pdf of s5000vsa but have not info about mixing steppings, but yes in the pdf of the s5000pal mobo that you give me, so its posible to mix cpu of diferent steppings but i have to assume that the info of the s5000pal pdf is valid for the s5000vas mobo?
thks and sorry about my english.
