We're going to upgrade our PE2950s by adding a second Xeon processor. 
Dell have quoted for "PE1950 Quad-Core Xeon E5345 (2.33GHz 2x4MB) 
1333MHz FSB Processor - Kit".

Are the heatsinks the same for PE2950 and PE1950?

There any other gotchas with adding a second processor (bios, memory etc)?

(I've asked these questions to our account manager, but from previous 
experience it always seems beneficial asking elsewhere too).
