What I did with HP Z420 was upgrade the heatsink it had, using Z440's heatsink. One more heat pipe and better design netted me about 15 to 20C cooler on a 8 core CPU, play and plug.

I have a couple HP z420 I want to fix. The motherboards went bad. I think they have 8-core xeons.

This is my rare Foxconn Socket 462 CPU cooler. It have aluminium frame and copper base and fins. It is used on my ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe with AMD Athlon XP 2500+ CPU.

Plenty of Z420 motherboards on ebay but first, reset your CMOS by unplug power cord and press & hold the button on the motherboard for at least 15 seconds. This sometimes brings out of retard mode.

Second, you can use unbuffered ECC from 4GB or 8GB per stick and also motherboard supports buffered ECC memory up to 128GB within reasonable price again, from ebay.
