The key is the bootblock date shown in the BIOS work.
It shows the pinout of the power cable, taken as you hold the cable and look at the connector. Each of the pins in the connector is physically keyed with either a square or a slightly rounded socket and there are only 18 pins.If you have the later 003 revision then you can use either X55xx or X56xx CPUs. It’s physically write-protected within the BIOS and does not get upgraded when you flash the BIOS.So if you have one of the earlier revisions and you flash your BIOS then the X56xx CPUs will be recognised but the bootblock may fail to get that far and you could be presented with a black screen and a POST failure when you power up.The worst issues seem to be with dual-CPU configurations.Later on this article I’ll go through my own setup and experiences.
We ran Redhat Enterprise Linux on them and they were, and still are, extremely fast linux servers that could operate as physical boxes in our production environment or virtuals in development. And it was very expensive, much too expensive to justify forking out for one. You can now pick up a brand new replacement motherboard for an HP Z800 on ebay for £100. Excitement quickly turned into a daunting realisation that I may have bitten off more than I could chew. It will not fit into any ‘normal’ PC case, not even an EATX tower case. There’s a separate power connector for the memory banks with a proprietary connector. Clearly this is a server motherboard adapted only slightly to fit into HP’s proprietary case with HP’s proprietary power supply and cooling system.
