I have a HP Z600 workstation for work. Anybody have any idea if this will handle the Xeon 5690? It says on the website that it can take up to 2x 5670s.

I currently have 1x 5649

since there's very little difference between those cpus my guess is it would work fine, but it is just a guess......even still i would be surprised if it didn't work

The x5690 is the fastest LGA1366 hex core @ 3.47 GHz.

The x5687 is the fastest quad core at 3.6 GHz.

The x5698 is the fastest dual core at a whopping 4.4 GHz.

It all depends on how many cores you want vs. how fast you want each core.

Yes the x5690 works with the Z600. Avoid xeon W3670, W3680, W3690 cpus. Those are for single cpu mobos only
