Re: Processors

no this system will not run a 1ghz proc...any PIII though up to 733 will do...compaq tested processors preferred

Re: Processors

How is it possible to upgrade from P2 400 to P3 550? The processor speed setting is only up to 500 on the switch. Please help!

Re: Processors

The Proliant 400 seems to support a P2-350 to a P3-600. Here are the jumper settings.
S1 S2 S3 S4 S5 S6
PII 350 MHz XXX OFF OFF ON ON XXX
PII 400 MHz XXX ON ON OFF ON XXX
PII 450 MHz XXX ON OFF OFF ON XXX
PIII 500 MHz XXX OFF ON OFF ON XXX
PIII 550 MHz XXX OFF OFF OFF ON XXX
PIII 600 MHz XXX ON ON ON OFF XXX

Re: Processors

Thanks Mark, I will try out the P3/500.

What is the jumper settings for P3/733 you referred above in your first reply?

Re: Processors

600mhz is the max. The first response I must have been thinking of a different server. I do apologize.

Re: Processors

Mark, is it absolutely necessary to have 512KB L2 cache on the cpu? Will the system work with 256KB L2 cache on the cpu?

Re: Processors

Mark, couple more questions:

1. L2 cache on the cpu : must the size be 512KB? Will 256KB be acceptable?
2. which cpu will work better: P3-600E (0.18micron , 1.65v, SECC2) or P3-600 (0.25micron, 2.05v, SECC2)?

Re: Processors

Either processor will work fine. There shouldn't be any difference when it comes to performance. For the cache size it should support either 128 or 256.
