(Sorry for my bad English)

Can I use a Xeon X5690 CPU on the Intel DX58SO2 mainboard? I have installed last BIOS Version 920.

At http://processormatch.intel.com/Processors/CompatibleProcessors?componentName=dx58so2 Compatible Processors site I can only find the W3690. What are the differences W3690 vs. X5690?

This thread is from 2014.  That is 8 years ago.  You should have started a new thread.

 

Now, the bad news.  The x5690 is not supported by your board's BIOS.

Also, the x5675 is not supported either.
