Later today I'm getting one of these beasts from a fellow techy down the road from me. It's a dual processor capable jobbie, currently sporting a single PIII 550Mhz, 256MB PC 100 SDRAM and a ~4GB SCSI drive. I've got plenty of other drives I can install, and I'm pushing the RAM to 448MB as soon as it's in my hot little hands.
However, I have never owned, or really even used, a dual processor machine. The guy I'm buying it from is including another PIII 550 processor, but says he doesn't have a Voltage Regulator Module (VRM) for it. I know what a VRM does, but pardon my ignorance, would a single processor PIII 550 machine have a VRM? I have a PIII 550 machine with a cracked board in the garage, and I was wondering if that would have what I'm looking for? I've never run into a VRM before, and I haven't a clue about them (except for my small amount of Googling on the subject).
Is there anyone out there that's got a lil' more knowledge than myself and would be willing to enlighten me?
