    So I ordered some 5355 Xeons to upgrade to an 8 core machine...everywhere mentioned to get some long either 3mm or T15 screwdrivers...I have 2 questions, 1) Which one is better 3m or T15...obviously both will work but what is the screw really? and 2) How long of a screwdriver do I need for this job? All replies are GREATLY appreciated!

    Screws are 3mm hex. You need 9" long key/screwdriver (thin).

    I ordered my 3mm Allen wrench from Amazon, it's Eklind brand. You'll also need a thin number one Philips screw driver, and a long number two Philips screw driver.

    Angled tip needle nosed pliers are a useful tool to reattach the CPU B heatsink temp sensor cable that's located under the RAM cage.
