D20 (4155CTO) processor upgrade E5506 to X5570



I have a D20 workstation (4155CTO) with dual E5506 processors.

I'm thinking of upgrading the processors and need to know what I require to move to dual X5570 processors?


Thanks in advance.

welcome to the forum!


the existing heatsinks in your system are compatible with the X5570.   all you'll need are the processors and a good thermal compound.   shin-etsu X23-7783D is a good choice.
