Hello Admins..

I thank all the people who kindly responded to my question, which

"I have a SUN Enterprise 250 with 1 CPU module at 400Mhz (2Mb
My question is if I can add a second 400Mhz (4 Mb cache) CPU or
both CPUs have to be exactly the same Mhz && cache size ???"

The answer is YES, they have to be the same speed and cache size.

Some folks say that 2 different CPU will work at the lowest Mhz speed
and at the minimum cache size. This is done by negotiating and is
not supported by SUN, but reported to work.
