The Upgrade RAID controller for Proliant ML350 Generation 1

I have the Proliant server ML350 generation 1 with hot-plug drive cage.
I would upgrade it for utilization with Ultra 320 HDDs.
Can I use the Smart Array 641 controller in the server?

hi gall

the 641 will NOT FIT into your pci slots. the g1 has only 5 volt coded slots (1 ghz model is an exception).

and the 641 has ONLY a 3.3 volt keyed connector.

best regards
