HP DL380 G4

Do i need to Use HP Memory in a HP DL380 G4 Rail Server, or can i use any Memory as long as it fits the right Specs? (Keep in mind the Server is out of Warranty)

Also does the RAM have to be 180 or 240 Pin?

Hello,

I would recommend using a equivalent module from Kingston or MicroMemory since they make modules which have the SPD chip coded right.

You can also use their memory configurations to find the memory that fits the G4 machine.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

I will check them.

btw, I checked the Crucial website and they say that this server takes PC2 5300 modules, not PC2 3200 modules.

Can it take either then?

Thanks,
Sam
