Upgrade HP BL460c G7 E5620 6G 1P Svr (603588-B21)



I plan to upgrade HP BL460c G7 E5620 6G 1P Svr (603588-B21)


I need to add one more E5620 processor and  increase amount of RAM to 24 GB


I need somebody to check that I have selected the correct part nambers from the spare parts list before order:


For the second processor I selected: 


508955-001 CPU heatsink - Bulldozer type - Includes processor alcohol pad

594887-001 ntel Xeon E5620 Quad-Core 64-bit processor - 2.40GHz (Westmere-EP, 12MB Level-3 cache, Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) speed 5.86 GT/s, 80 watt thermal design power (TDP), FCLGA 1366 socket)


For the memory I have selected

500662-B21 HP 8GB (1x8GB) Dual Rank x4 PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333) Registered CAS-9 Memory Kit


Are these parts correct and enough to make an upgrade?


Thank you

and Kind Regards

Instead of ordering the heatsink and processor separately, why not just order the processor kit; Part# 612127-L21/B21, HP BL460c G7 Intel® Xeon® E5620 (2.40GHz/4-core/12MB/80W) FIO Processor Kit?  The memory you selected is listed in the QuickSpecs for the G7, though if you're adding memory, you may need to match what you currently have.

Thank you for the reply.


I have another question.


Can I install following memory module 

8GB dual in-line memory module (DIMM), PC3L-12800R-11, 1Rx4, single rank

Part number 735302-001


to my HP BL460c G7 E5620 6G 1P Svr (603588-B21) ?


According to specs, the 603588-B21 server supports only  PC3-10600R-9 memory.


But does the PC3L-12800R-11 backward compatible?

Ia there a garatee that it will work in my server?


Thank you.
