MSI Europe has mailed me the EPROM but after 3 weeks it has not arrived.  International mail has been quite unreliable for small parcels, in my experience, since there is no tracking number.  Items get hung up in customs, or just go missing altogether.  I have found I can send a UPS "Return Service Label" to the folks at MSI, which I pay for using my account with UPS, and they can print this and tape it to the envelope containing the EPROM.  I suspect that this will actually reach me, since it's traceable and insured.  And I pay the shipping this way, without burdening the generous people at MSI- Europe. 

I am also investigating to see if the part can be PURCHASED from MSI in the U.S. using the MSI part number I got (M31-39V0828-W03)  just to see about that.  The place I bought the motherboard from is asking their MSI rep to check on it.

If you have 8mb bios then it will run the quadcore without problems.
Yes 1 CPU is no problem.
Yes you can run it with a dual-core.
No you can not mix CPU's, the 2 have to be the same type AND series.

Bas, just to prevent any confusion:
- it's not possible to mix cpu's, both need to be 2xxx or 8xxx series.
- But, is it posible to run the board with two cpu's of the same series, but different speed, let's say one Opteron 2212 and one 2218?

2 the SAME CPU's, you can not MIX.

So if you have one 8354, then the other one has to be as well a 8354.
And at best produced at the same time.
So not 1 being 65nm and the other 45nm, if they happen to have the same name.
As well as best produced in the same month or so.

To be short -> THEY MUST BE EXACTLY THE SAME!

No Hans, that will NOT WORK! I tried before. I tested 1 Opteron 240 and an Opteron 244 as second CPU, NO BOOT.
I'm pretty sure the newer boards won't boot either.

Dual CPU kits like dual channel RAM kits?  :lol_anim:
Henry, it's not a joke, for servers you can actually buy Matching-CPU-kits! :shocked_anim:
Sorry to bust your joke like this.

2000 and 8000 series are the same CPU, the first number just reflects the number of CPU's that cann work together.

2xxx = Dual CPU
8xxx = More then 2

But essentially the CPU are the same.
It's the last 3 numbers that are important.

Why do you ask? It has been discussed all over this thread.

my actual 2347HE's aren't on that list but still work fine.. my question is about the 'se' part, the high-TDP spec.
