Hey there, recently purchased a custom server thing that includes the Intel server case and Intel S500PSL motherboard featuring two Xeon E5335 processors (@2.00GHZ).
I did some awesome custom work to it, such as installing a sound card, GTX 260 graphics card, 750W power supply and a couple other things like wifi and two WD raptor drives.
I was looking for help because I want to upgrade the processors and have no idea what the heck to do. I am a college guy and have a small electronics and computer repair store but
have never done anything of BIOS updates or CPU swaps of this caliber.
I was hoping to get the super fast Xeon X5470 Because I know I need a socket 771 1333MHZ cpu, HOWEVER I dont know if the Harpertown is supported...
Maybe the X5365 Clovertown is a better bet?
I've pulled all the info I can from the intel server management local host thing. I believe my board is the S500PSLSATAR

Any help is much appreciated! Also, however if anyone knows how to update BIOS, that would be awesome too if I need to!
