Proliant DL380 G4 memory upgrade issues

We currently have 6 GB in the server, and purchased through Crucial (and their upgrade advisor) 3 4GB kits (2x2GB). The only thing different is that it is DDR2-5300. Shouldn't this be backwards compatible speed-wise?

Please advise.

Re: Proliant DL380 G4 memory upgrade issues

There was an online configuration assistant on Crucial's website where I could feed it the system information that I had (specifically the model of the server). I spoke with them just a short time ago and they advised me that the memory won't work, and I didn't even have to ask for a refund and RMA.

Paul,

If it's any help you should compare the Crucial parts against the HP memory option numbers. Crucial and others should have a reference to these HP numbers.

Please see attached image.
