I am wondering if the 2.0 GHz and 2.3 GHz dual core PowerMac G5's use the same motherboard as the 2.5 GHz quad core PowerMac G5 (which featured two dual core PPC chips). Does anyone know? Is it possible the the 2.0 and 2.3 GHz machines use the same motherboard as the 2.5 GHz machine, simply with one CPU slot empty?

If this is the case, is is perhaps possible to upgrade a 2.3 GHz dual core PowerMac G5 to a 2.5 GHz quad core PowerMac G5?

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
