Memory Upgrade for DL380 G3

Memory Upgrade for DL380 G3

We have a DL380G3 (p/n 301111-001) and we would like to upgrade the memory. When I look at the quickspecs for DL380 G3 http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11473_na/11473_na.HTML , it seems that all of the DL380 G3's with a 400MHz Front Side Bus uses PC2100 DDR SDRAM running at 200MHz, whereas the DL380 G3's with a 533 FSB uses PC2100 DDR SDRAM running at 266MHz.

When I look at the HP Part Store, the only memory they sell when I plug in my p/n is PC2100 DDR-266MHz memory.

Our DL380 G3 has a 400 MHz FSB, so will 266MHz memory work in our system or do I need to search out 200MHz memory?

Thank you,
JT

Re: Memory Upgrade for DL380 G3

That should work, there's only a limit on maximum memorysize (4Gb module works only in 2.8GHz and higher).

Re: Memory Upgrade for DL380 G3

Matthjs, if I'm reading the quickspecs correctly, there are some 2.8-GHz models that aren't restricted to the 4-GB module limit, namely the ones with 533MHz Front Side busses. Since our server is a 2.8-GHz with a 400-MHz FSB, I don't think the 4-GB module will work.

What confuses me is that if the 4-GB module will not work in a 400-MHz FSB machine, why would the other 266-MHz memory work?

Re: Memory Upgrade for DL380 G3

Jaragon, I appreciate your response, but if the quickspecs indicate that the 4-GB kit only works in 533MHz FSB machines, how can the 2-GB DIMMS work? Where did you get your information?

Thanks for your help,

Matthjs, I mis-stated something... it isn't 4-GB modules that are limited... it is 4-GB kits (2 x 2048).
