DL140 and 6404 cards

We have a client running a DL140, with Server 2000, and external storage. They have the same setup with DL380 servers. All servers are running the same type of Database App, however the DL140 is typically three times slower than the other servers.
We have flashed the DL140, the 6404 card, and are running the latest Windows drivers.
In the spec sheet for the 6404 card, it doesn't show the DL140 as a valid server, but does show other Proliant models.
The Raid configuration tool shows no errors. Has anyone else managed to get DL140's to run reliably with 6404 cards?

Well... the DL140 Chipset (GC-SL chipset) only has half the bandwidth of the DL380 (GC-LE). This server, even with the same RAM, processors, etc. will run half as fast as the DL380.

I equate the DL140 to a high end PC in a pizza box config.
