    Bought a matched pair of Xeon E5472 (SLANR) from ebay.
    My package arrived today, but the stepping on the CPU´s are SLBBH.
    Will they run in my MP, og did I just flushed 130 bucks out in the toilet?

    Contact the seller. Item is not as described. They could cover shipping back costs if they're reputable company/person.

    Weird. This would be a first time I hear about any E0 CPU working in 3,1. People I know tried, it never worked. Only C0 did. I'll take a look on 3,1 EFI, I'm curious if there's a microcode for SLBBH.

    Edit: there's no CPUID for E0 CPUs in 3,1 EFI (MP31_006C_05B) that I have.

    I've just installer Them, and It's a no go.
    No start chime, and blank screen. Fans are running, but that's all.

    I'm a little pissed Rights now. Will slap the CPU's tomorrow:(

    Oh, that makes a lot more sense now. I'm kinda embarrassed for not catching that.

    OMFG... Got a new package from the seller today. This time I got one (1) E5450 SLANQ :eek:
    I´ve asked him for an explanation - end gently indicating I´m not satisfied.

    :eek: I think you should post link to this seller's shop. Potential buyers should think twice before bidding on his items.

    Yeah, maybe I will do that. But I´ll wait to I get an explanation. There might be some circumstances, that I´m not aware of.
    The seller has a very good reputation on the bay.
