Read this post,  HERE.

 

You understand that you have a v1 Z420 rather than a v2 Z420 with the newer of the two boot block dates of 3/6/13.

 

Yours can only run the processors listed in the earlier QuickSpecs for the Z420..... download a bunch of those and when you see processors that are Intel V2 you'll know you can't run those.  Processors listed in the early QuickSpecs may not be listed in the later ones but they'll still work.

 

Your heatsink/fan can run the cooler or hotter running processors, which is nice.

 

There are lots of posts in here about upgrading the Z620 to faster processors and you'll be able to get perspective from those posts.....
