DL320e Gen8 V2 Ram help

Can some knowledgable person help me with RAM for this server?!


I cant afford to pack out my machines with the HP smart memory, and that leads me to this question.

Would NON HP Smartmemory, i.e Kingston 1600mhz RAM actually run at 1600Mhz in this machine, or is it only Genuine HP Smart memory that will run at 1600mhz?


Can I use Kingston 1600Mhz Low voltage memory, and still have it run at the full speed?

Many thanks!

If it works it will run at full speed. However there is a chance you'll get lots of 207 errors and it doesn't detect the memory at all.

Also if at some point you got issues that might be related to the memory (even if it worked fine for years), HP support won't be able to help you much unless you test with HP Smart-memory.
Did my post help? Thank me with kudo's! :)
