DL585 PC2700 and PC3200

Can a DL585 with the PC2700 memory board use PC3200 RAM?

No.

"-PC2700 memory support requires -002 or greater processor boards
- PC3200 memory, running at 400 MHz will be supported on a PC3200-only processor board (012567-001)"

Hi Kevin,
Please go through the attachment which will clear your doubt completely about the memory configuration.

We are facing the same problem here.

DL585 doesn't seems to work with PC3200 dimm even if they are PC2100/PC2700 compatible.

We found that mixing PC2700 and PC3200 dimm works with all memory at 333Mhz.

The same PC3200 dimms are currently working on different servers designed for PC2100 or PC2700, obviously at reduced speed.

Any suggest?

I ended up ordering two PC2700 boards and new PC2700 memory. HP needs to change their documentation to point out that there are only 4 DIMM slots on the PC3200 boards.
