Will a 32-bit Xeon work with a 64-bit Xeon board? Will my RAM still work?
The title says it all. I have two 2.4GHz Xeon socket 604 CPU's (with HyperThreading) and I found a motherboard with two of the same sockets, only it's for 64-bit CPU's. Will it work? If yes, are there reasons I shouldn't?
Oh, and it says it is for Xeons from 2.80GHz to 3.80GHz. Does it matter?
I also have two 1GB sticks of Registered DDR 266 SDRAM, and the motherboard specs say
Will it work? I think it will, but my board is 32-bit and this one is 64.
Edit: the motherboard is a SUPERMICRO X6DHE-G
