Processor Upgrade

I have a Proliant ML 370 G4 and would like to add an addition processor. The Current Processor is a Xeon 3.2ghz/2M/800 I would like to add a Xeon 3.8. Is this possible or would there be a conflict with two different processor speeds?

Nope; Speed, Steping & Family needs to be the same. Also, update the Rom BIOS before the upgrade.

Re: Processor Upgrade

hi

Happy Dude is right.

Customer Advisory
Mixing Processors with Different Speeds, Cache Sizes, Number of Cores, or Rated Maximum Power Consumption Is Not Supported in ProLiant 300/400/500-Series Servers.

the only thing supported if the processors have a difference in stepping(minor changes in processor), for example

Intel Pentium III Processor 1.40 GHz
Stepping: SL657

Intel Pentium III Processor 1.40 GHz
Stepping: SL6BY

but the they are the same speed. So in those cases the recommendation is upgrade System ROM

Re: Processor Upgrade

hi
so what you can do is only install the 3.8 - buy another 3.2 or of course buy another 3.8
