DL320 G4 Memory Types

Hi,

I need to install a two new memory modules in a server DL320 G4, i read in quickspecs, the memories are PC2-4200 (533 Mhz).

I have PC2-3200 (400 Mhz), the DDR2 technology allows install a memories in this server with this frecuency?

Thanks for your help!

Re: DL320 G4 Memory Types

The speed of the memory should match the bus-speed of the processor.

The maintenance and service guide mentions :

*Use only 512-MB, 1-GB, or 2-GB, 72-bit wide, 1.8-V, PC2-4200 Unbuffered ECC DDR2 DIMMs. Use HP DDR2 DIMMs only.

HP will not have tested the system with
other memory types then advised (PC-4200).
So the system technically could work at the lower speed, but may be less stable and won't be fully supported by HP.
