Thank you for your response. So how should we proceed? I've read different things about this board.
Can we get a v2 and it will work out of the box in a new -353 motherboard?
Or do we need to get a v1 CPU first, then upgrade the BIOS in order to be able to use a v2 xeon?
To answer your question, the V2 processor should work fine with a 353 revision board.
