RAM issue

i have HP DL380 G4 server with dual xeon 3.0 using DDR2-400 RAM.

im having trouble to find this RAM on the market, can i use/mixed up with DDR2-533 or something? i mean whether the server will support it or not?

and does HP still sell this DDR2-400 RAM?

thank you

Re: RAM issue

Hi.

The memory is still available with part numbers

343055-B21 (2x512)
343056-B21 (2x1024)
343057-B21 (2x2048)

It is listed as PC3200 DDR2.

Kingston also make RAM of this spec and if my memory serves me correctly the OEMs for these products included Hynix and Samsung.

I wouldn't mix the RAM if I could avoid it.

Re: RAM issue

thanks for replying, but are you sure its 400 Hz ? i try to look on the market but the lowest they have only 566 HZ. the one you said, it could be 566 Hz or more and end up not working too right?

Re: RAM issue

About the hotplug drive case, HP doesn't have an individual part number for that part. You can find it in google and buy separated HDDs but that would be unsupported. ( meaning not tested and that no support will be given by HP ).

Re: RAM issue

Hi.

Just a quick note. The DL380 G4 came in two different form factors. One had space for 6 U320 SCSI drives, the other had space for 8 Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) drives.

The part numbers for U320 drives have already been listed:

The SFF SAS drives supported are:
HP 146GB 3G SAS 10K SFF SP HDD 431958-B21
HP 72GB 3G SAS 10K SFF SP HDD 375861-B21
HP 72GB 3G SAS 15K SFF SP HDD 431935-B21
HP 36GB 3G SAS 10K SFF SP HDD 375859-B21
HP 36GB 3G SAS 15K SFF SP HDD 431933-B21

If the server came with a P600 controller then you could also add the following SATA drive:

HP 60GB 1.5G SATA 5.4K SFF HDD 379306-B21

Although its not listed on the tech spec sheets there is also the following drive which should work:

HP 120GB 1.5G SATA 5.4K SFF HDD 431786-B21

Note that although you can mix and match SATA and SAS drives on a P600 controller, don't put them into the same RAID group!
