DL360 G7 Memory Upgrade

Hi,

 

Our company has a DL360 G7 with dual 6 core processors.  Total memory is 60 GB in the following configuration:

 

| Spare | Spare | Spare | Spare | Spare | Spare |

|   2GB  |   2GB  |   2GB  |   2GB  |   2GB  |   2GB  |

|   8GB  |   8GB  |   8GB  |   8GB  |   8GB  |   8GB  |

 

We are thinking of purchasing another 6x8GB modules to fill the remaining slot in each and take us up to a total of 108GB. Our understanding is that if we fill the remaining slots (i.e.. Have 3 DIMMS per bank) then our FSB speed will drop from 1333MHz to 800MHz.

 

My question is: Will the drop in bus speed affect the overall performance of the server, and if so, should we remove the 2GB modules when we install the 8GB ones, giving us a total of 96GB.  

 

Thanks,

 

Tom

Re: DL360 G7 Memory Upgrade

2GB & 8GB memory drop the performace of server. You can use http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/options/tool/hp_memtool.html HP Memory Online Config tool.

Better to remove 2GB dims and replace with 4GB dimms.

Also want to highlight here list price of 4GB & 8GB dimms are almost same right now.

I would recommded to use 8GB dimms.

 

Thanks
