    Mixing E5-2687W CPU

    Apiecost

      Hi, I have a friend with a system that has a single E5-2687W CPU installed and is now wanting to install a second. However, seems as though the E5-2687W v3 is all that is currently available. I have looked at the Intel datasheets that mention the pre-reqs for CPUs to be mixed... but it's still not clear to me.

      Does anyone know if these two CPUs will work together, or if I should find an older CPU to pair it with?

       

      (I was really hoping Intel would have an online tool that just checked compatibility!)
