If you look on page 2-4 of the original Speedster manual, it indicates the recommended cooler
for CPU's up to 95W and another recommended cooler for CPU's up to 120W - They advise us to
make sure the cooling meets the amount of heat being rejected from the CPU's - I think the
Barcelona SE models are 120W - 125W each

reporting: 9652 1.1 with 8MB bios supports 8358SE, but seems unstable. i suspect the powersupply.

For what it's worth now, the speedster 1 with 8MB bios supports ALL Barcelona quadcores I tested. and that's all of them. (8346he to 2360se)

I still have this server with K9ND speedster in it (8 MB BIOS v 2.10), had Barcelona quad-core Opterons in it, I just got a pair of Opteron 2382 2.6 GHz Shanghai CPUs  and they work fine in this motherboard.  I guess this Speedster1 motherboard doesn't support all the whiz-bang power saving features of the Shanghai 45 nm CPUs, but the CPUs themselves work fine.

8 cores running at 2.6 GHz with bigger on-chip caches, you know, this server is still good for a while yet.  Runs Windows Server 2008 pretty well, perfect for a small business.
