Adding RAM to ML350 G2: HP or Kingston?


I have a ML350 G2 server with 1 1024 MB DIMM and I'm thinking of installing another. Local HP representatives offer two alternatives: HP original DIMM (700 EUR) or Kingston OEM DIMM (400 EUR).

If the existing DIMM is Compaq original, is it important to add HP original DIMM or could I go with Kingston? I understand from reading this forum that having exactly identical memory modules is needed for memory interleaving, but I haven't found any mention of memory interleaving in ML350G2 docs so I assume it is not supported.
