ML 150 G3 & Xeon e54xx series?

The ML 150 G3 run e53xx series and the e54xx appear compatible, but will the ML 150 G3 run Xeon e54xx series?

 

Many thanks,

Morgan.

Re: ML 150 G3 & Xeon e54xx series?

Hi Morgan,

 

Unfortunately I'm pretty certain it wont accept e54xx series cpu's. I had a G3 & tried to upgrade from E5110 to E5220 cpu's and got no display.

 

This indicates that there's either a power or pin difference in the sockets that prevents the cpu from initializing.  Normally if the cpu initializes you will get a display & if it's not supported by the rom you will get the ""ERROR: Unsupported CPU installed" & then the system will shut down.

 

To be fair there isn't a massive difference in performance between E53xx & E54xx series cpu's & as they are so cheap now it's probably better to install the fastest E53xx series cpu's you can in it.

 

Hope this is of some help to you.

 

Cheers

Hi,

 

ML150 G3 Server is compatible with Xeon 5000, 5100 and 5300 series of processors.

This server comes with two types of system boards and they are:

 

410426-001:  System board (used no eariler Dual-Core only processor systems)
436718-001:  System board (used on Quad-Core and newer Dual-Core processor systems, but is backward compatable with older Dual-core systems)

 

Intel Xeon processor 5000 and 5100 is Dual-Core

Intel Xeon processor 5300 is Quad-Core

Unfortunately there is no BIOS update available that would support Intel 5400 on this server.

 



Thank You!

Hi,

 

Xeon E54XX series CPU is not compatible with ML150 G3 server as it supports only 5000, 5100, and 5300 series.

Thanks - , ,bunter6

It's very very helpful to find a definitive answer on this!

 

There's a pair of 5345's on ebay for $40, I'll stick with that.

 

BTW - the new message board (I haven't been here for a while) is a nightmare.  Hitting the reply button or logging in via "passport" gives me continous redirection failure messages.  I had to re-edit the web address to get here!

 

Thanks,

Morgan.

Re: ML 150 G3 & Xeon e54xx series?

BTW - what's the system board form factor?  10" x 10" doesn't seem to conform to anything I can find - is it an HP only standard?

 

Thanks,

Morgan.
