    Intel Xeon E5405: Compatibility with our new system

      Hello Everyone

      I have tried real hard to find the answer to this question before I resorted to bringing it to your attention.  Since I have failed, here goes...

       

      I am purchasing the following system:

      http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/tower/5046/SYS-5046A-X.cfm

       

      It has the following motherboard:

      http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Core2Duo/X58/C7X58.cfm

       

      The above linked page has the following information:

       

      Processor/Cache

      CPU

      LGA 1366 Socket
      Intel® Core™ i7-965 Extreme Edition
      Intel® Core™ i7 series
      Intel® Xeon® 5500 series
      Intel® Xeon® 3500 series

       

      I am intending on purchasing this processor:

      http://www.intel.com/buy/server/boxed-processor/embedded.htm?sSKU=BX80574E5405P&fmlid=2

       

      OK.  Since CPU has to have the "LGA 1366" socket, and the "Intel® Xeon® 5500" series processor is listed as one of the supported choices of processors, can I assume that the Intel® Xeon® E5405 that I want to purchase is of the required LGA 1366 Socket and will therefore work on our new system?

       

      Your help on this matter is greatly appreciated.
