X56xx compatibility with SR2600URLX

Jump to solution

Hi,

A client has an Intel server SR2600URLX, containing a S5520UR motherboard.

We want to upgrade the processors from E5506 to X5670/80/90.

I am receiving conflicting information from official Intel suppliers here (they do not know if these processors will work on that platform).

On the server system support page - compatibility with processors, X56xx are not listed:

http://ark.intel.com/products/48666/Intel-Server-System-SR2600URLX ARK | Intel&# 174; Server System SR2600URLX - compatible products/processors.

However, on X5670 and X5680 support pages at least, they are compatible with S5520UR motherboard, but not with the whole server?

http://ark.intel.com/products/47920/Intel-Xeon-Processor-X5670-12M-Cache-2_93-GHz-6_40-GTs-Intel-QPI... http://ark.intel.com/products/47920/Intel-Xeon-Processor-X5670-12M-Cache-2_93-GHz-6_40-GTs-Intel-QPI...

http://ark.intel.com/products/47916/Intel-Xeon-Processor-X5680-12M-Cache-3_33-GHz-6_40-GTs-Intel-QPI... http://ark.intel.com/products/47916/Intel-Xeon-Processor-X5680-12M-Cache-3_33-GHz-6_40-GTs-Intel-QPI...

Also, this document:

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-030213.htm http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-030213.htm

leads me to believe all 3 processors X5670, X5680, X5690 should work on this system, with enhanced cooling solution BXSTS100C ?

Can I get an official answer for this please? If the processors don't fit, what would be the top two available processors for this system?

Thank you very much!

Tudor

Yes it's supported. Thermal limitation is documented in note 3 of http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-030213.htm Tested processor list, which doesn't apply to you:

3. Supported under the Intel® Server Board S5520UR and associated SKUs (SR1600UR, SR1625UR, SR2600UR and SR2625UR). When using this processor with a 1U system (SR16xxUR), use only Single or Dual Rank DIMMs due to thermal limitation.

Use the passive heatsink that comes with your system. No additional thermal solution is required.
