If you have a few extra converter tapes send one my way I was in a rush last time would love to document it and give you the modded chip after no charge for your time :)

Just did the conversion on my Gigabyte GA--P35-DS3L with the X5460. The latest bios on it knew it was a Xeon X5460. Booted into windows and ran a couple tests and worked just perfect.

I heard about this and wanted to try it out on a old board of mine. The E5450 looks to be the cpu worthwhile. Anyone have one? I am interested in buying and trying this out.

Yep, now I have one, but it's LG 1366 version (Xeon X5650) and it is absolutely brutal CPU when come to multithreading. 6 cores, 12 threads - that CPU give multithreaded apps real power.
There is good thread about Xeon owners at TechPowerUp forum:
