P800 controller in ML370 G5

Hi, We got ML370 G5 and we swapped P400 with P800 controllers, I have following questions to achieve the Best performance,

Both P800 Controllers are installed next to each other PCI Express slot 6 and 7, does it affect performance ? Should not they be apart like Slot 1 and 6 as HP ships the server with

PCI expander is not installed, so both p800 are running in x4 mode, should it affect performance ? when would the PCI Expander help ?

We placed call to HP for this Engineering concerns and we have not got any satisfactory answer,

Please help,
Thank You,

Re: P800 controller in ML370 G5


are you experiencing performance issues?
or it just something that makes you think could cause performance issues?

try swapping card and test. I don't know what you are trying to do if connect the P800 to the internal HDDs or connect external storage but ...don't wait for a response trial and error on your own sorry to say I think is faster than waiting
Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!
