Upgrading L2000-44

We want to upgrade several HP L2000-44 (model obtained from SAM - System Properties) servers by replacing the two 440Mhz processors with 750Mhz. Are the HP L2000-44's equivalent to the rp5430, which per the HP server website will accomodate two 750Mhz processors? Or will we have to upgrade to an rp5470 to do this? Thanks.

Hi Clifford,
You will have to do a full upgrade as the RP5430 system board does not support 750Mhz Cpu's. If you have an A5191B (check the tag on the front bezel), you can go to 550Mhz, but if you have an A5191A, you won't even be able to do that. If you want 750's or 850's, you will need to go to the RP5470. Here's a link to the upgrade guide:

Iain,

Thanks for the info. The upgrade document was exactly what I needed!

Clifford,

The L2000 can hold up to 4 CPUs, so adding two more 440MHz would be a cheaper alternative (List Price $2360) to a full backplane swap and processor upgrade (List Price $9145, after $4000 CPU Trade-in)

The L2000 is not equivalent to the L2000. The rp5470 has more memory bandwidth potential that will help get the most possible out of the higher clock rate processors, particularily if you get both memory carriers and spread memory across them evenly.
