i recently acquired a Tyan Tempest i5000px motherboard and i wanted to upgrade the cpu's to something faster and well long story short the CPU's i got are not supported by the latest bios and i was wondering how to mod the BIOS and add the needed microcode for my new CPU's i am trying to get a pair of x5260's to work with the motherboard was wondering if someone could add the microcode for me or show me a tutorial or at least point me in the right direction :?

Your hardware does not support 45nm Xeon 5000 series CPUs, ony 65nm Xeon 5000 series CPUs. A bios patch is not going to change that.

Make sure the mainboard voltage regulators are properly cooled, if they are not designed for the 45nm CPU they will be strained a lot, producing excessive heat.
That's usually the main reason for non-support of newer CPU, the regulators were not designed for the high Ampere load on them.
