ML115 memory

ML115 memory

My company has an ML115 server which was provided by our former IT support who is an HP partner.

I was looking at upgrading the memory today and CPU-Z reports the memory speed to be 333MHz despite the presence of four 512MB PC2-5300 sticks of memory.

Is there actually an option to throttle the memory speed or do we have defective ram?

Hi Will,

ML115 G1 server supports up to 8GB DDR II 667/800 unbuffered ECC DIMMs in 512 MB, 1 GB or 2 GB configuration.

Ensure that all memory is of same config and you can try installing a single module to isolate.

If the server is reporting to be 333MHz even at the POST, the BIOS should be updated.

Re: ML115 memory

Well, 333 MHz is the actual clock speed of DDR2-667. With CPU-Z, on all of my machines (ML110, ML115, ML3500 the true clock speed of the RAM is reported, the same as it is on my Athlon 64 x2 at home (and on my laptop, a Stinkpad T61).

There's nothing wrong with your server or with the RAM - 333MHz is the correct speed for PC2-5300 RAM.

I was under the impression PC2-5300 memory was supposed to be 667MHz.

I would like to be able to test it but the server in question is currently mission critical.

DDR2 is rated (in MHz) at twice the speed at which it really runs - 333MHz is DDR2-667.
