CPU for rp3440-4

Currently I have an rp3440-4 server with HP-UX 11.23. The server was purchased with only one duel core CPU (AB354A) and I want to purchase and install a second duel core CPU.

Is there anything special that I need to know or do in order to purchase the new CPU? I contacted two companies and asked for a quote. One company gave me a quote of $3850.00 for the processor and the second company gave me a quote of $13568.28 for the processor. What is wrong with this picture?

Yea, the second company is selling me a lot parts and I just wanted to know if I really needed everything that they are trying to sell me.

Here is the list of items

Part Number Description
AB354AR Rmkt HP svr rp34x0 1GHz PA-8800 core CPU

Re: CPU for rp3440-4

Hi Jeffrey,

This is a complete list including an engineer onsite to intall the cpu, 3 years support (24X7 4 hours response time).

The first quote is probably for the cpu only.

Re: CPU for rp3440-4

I have installed CPU's in my other servers (L2000 & D380) so would installing this CPU be any differnet? Could I install the CPU myself? If I do what else do I need?

Re: CPU for rp3440-4

Hi Jeffrey

There's something screwy with the second quote you received.

The AB354AR is actually an 800MHz PA-8900 (not a 1GHz PA-8800). The "R" code means that it's a remarketed part originating from within HP EMR.

The first quote you have is from a broker, and covers the hardware only. The second quote is from HP and includes bundled installation and maintenance support services (hardware & software). It is up to you to decide which option offers better value.

FWIW we have a couple of surplus AB354A kits which weren't required for a recent roll-out. Feel free to contact me via sales AT parallix.com if you need another quote.

Re: CPU for rp3440-4

Ignore my last post - I'm clearly having a senior moment!

The AB354A is indeed the 1GHz PA-8800 part. For some reason I read it as AB534AR (which is the 800MHz PA-8900 part).

Apologies for the confusion.
