all the information you need to answer this question is in the hp specs/system manual


Last,.... hp offical policy is that they warranty adding a second cpu to a existing cpu


they do not warranty changing the primary cpu to a diffrent one (even if it's a supported cpu)


keep this in mind if your server is under warranty care
