[Beowulf] Swaping dual by quad-core Opterons in 4-year old mobo

I have been in a HP seminar where the AMD invited presenter told us that
quad-core Opterons are socket-compatible with older dual cores. He further
said that there will be a small performance drop in motherboards that do
not have the split-power capabality.

Has anybody successfully conducted such a swap? In HP DL145-G2 ?

PS: I'm still awaiting HP reply (> 2 weeks)
