    @ dragonfly41, That link seems to be a little more "in depth" than I'm accustomed to doing, ie, I'm not really that good at command line stuff and was hoping for something that was simple, like Ghost...

    The 3.6 I took out is a Cedar Mill not a Prescott. The Xeon I replaced it with is an X5460 @135 TDP (I think) not an E5450 as noted in post #5.
