use same clock speed for both processors, it makes life much easier.

In the past I was told that they had to match speed and stepping values. Stepping value is found by downloading the Intel CPU utility and running. May have changed since then last one I upgraded but they were very firm about matching these values.

In addition, my 2 cents. I would ditch the one you have and purchase a matched pair, or stick with single.
