    I have an Dell Optiplex 380 (Dell motherboard with Phoenix Bios). Have a modded Xeon E5450 (SLANQ) CPU (CPUID 1067h), this has the older C0 stepping. Tried running Stock Dell Bios version a07 as well as older A04 but the fan runs out at max speed and I get the unsupported processor message on startup. Does anyone here have a modded Dell Bios laying around that supports this fairly common swap? I tried ordering the newer SLMBB version of this chip with E0 stepping but alas they shipped me the older version ... This was supposed to be an easy project, you know how that goes.
    Appreciate any and all help
