Upgrade Gen8 server to Intel Xeon E5-2600 V2


Upgrade Gen8 server to Intel Xeon E5-2600 V2

Waseem had a question:




Hi All,


Our customer  wants to perform upgrade of two old BL460c Gen8 servers HP supplied in the mid of 2013.


The part number of the server is 641016-B21 and it  has Intel Xeon E5-2600 series CPU (version 1)

As part of upgrade process, customer wants to replace the old v1 CPU to new v2 CPU along with memory replacement and upgrade.



Can you please tell if this server is capable of supporting Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 series CPU?
