rp5700
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I want to upgrade my  rp5700 with a Xeon X7550 CPU, is that possible? Will the motherboard accept this CPU?

 

Thanks a lot!

this system is from the core 2/Vista era and will not run a x7550 (or any xeon) as it's Intel Q963 Express chipset is incompatable with the xeon's
