I wanted to get the pictures up first thing. I'll be back later to fill in the details. 

 

EDIT: Once again, I apologize for the poor picture quality. It's the best I could do in the low light situation here.

The eBay ad for this T7500 said it had a single processor but I was pleasantly surprised to see two X5650s under the hood. 

 

We will still be upgrading to the x5690s, which turbo up to 3.7GHz. Little trivia ... does anyone know what processor in this family is rated higher than x5690? There's only one....

 

Here are some benchmarks with the stock system the way I got it. I did go in and enable hyperthreading, but that's it. Turbos to 2.9GHz all core when running most benchmarks.

Im in the middle of the CPU upgrade and I noticed they sent me the same cooler that is on the riser card. However, this is still better than the stock chunk of aluminum. Most people run this without a fan directly on the CPU heatsink. However, In my situation, I would prefer to keep the fan on if at all possible due to 130W CPU. Anyone here have any experience with this computer in particular?

So in these pictures you can see my idea. Retain the fan and let it contribute to the cooling system.

I already checked, this setup will still fit under the shroud that covers the first CPU. 

Now it's just a matter of getting power to the new CPU cooling fan (it's a pull through design)...

However, there are no remaining fan ports on the motherboard. So I came up with the idea:

To potentially tap into the pre - existing CPU cooler fan. Like a splitter. If I can pull this off 

we will have the best cooling given the parts I have on hand. Can I get away with this, so long as I 

match wire to wire? In other words, I want to tap into the riser CPU fan power cord.
