Default Compatible motherboards for Xeon X3.00Ghz

Help...
I have just accuired 2 matched Xeon X3.00Ghz 8MBL2 Cache CPUs
( HP Sell these for £1800plus VAT each !! ). These are available as options for HP Proliant DL580 G3 Servers. These seema little bit better than my AMD Athlon 64Bit 3500+ ! I am having dificulty identifying a motherboard suitable for it.

The CPUs are HP supplied : 348110 B21

Any pointers as to compatible motherboards would be greatly appreciated.
James

do you happen to know which socket those xeons are? because xeons have two different socket types.

They are socket 604, and these motherboards should work.

Pick whichever one you want.

Just realised that subject still has compatible spelt incorrectly!

Thanks for the response.

Took a closer look at the CPUs and jotted down the following:

3000MP / 8ML3 / 667
SL8EW Costa Rica

Guessing 667 is the bus speed. But most Xeon boards I have seen state the 800 MHz Bus Speed.

So I am still not sure.

Thanks for the help so far!

Check out the link I gave you and you can pick a motherboard from there.
