Ever since I installed VMWare ESX server on my HP ML110 G4, I haven't got much chance playing it and it has been lying on the floor for a while...what a waste!
Recently I decided to convert it to my workstation pc and installed WIN2008 on it, so far I managed to add a USB sound card, install TV Tuner (Leadtek DTV 2000H) and managed to get it working after install the missing BDA component.
Now I am not quite satisfied with the CPU speed (Pentium D 810 2.8G) and the worst thing is, since it doesn't have HT I can't add Hyper-V to the server.
After doing some research, I found out that the server's documentation states that it supports xeon duo core 3000 , Pentium D CPUs but no quard core listed, I also found out similar Motherboards with same chipsets (Intel 3000/ICH7R) actually support Xeon Quad core 3200 CPUs.
After reading a post somewhere (in Japanese!) saying that Q6600 works with this server, together with the fact that Q6600 is identical to XEON X3200, I guess I will try to get one and see how it goes anyway. you gonna know that the benchmark score I got from a website shows Pentium D 2.8G gets 710 while for X3220 it is 2844!
