Can you order an 8 core CPU with a ProLiant BL460 gen8?

Kathleen had a server configuration question:




Hello everyone,

My customer has the following question:

Is it possible and supported to order a BL460 Gen 8 server with an 8 core CPU (E5-2690), and later field upgrade it by adding another (E5-2690) 8 core CPU.

What are the implications with the memory assuming the server has four (647899-B21 HP 8GB 1Rx4 PC3-12800R-11 Kits)




Input from Taha:




Yes it can be done


Just need additional memory for second cpu when installed. To make sure that it will perform.
