Will a Xeon 550MHz from 6400R run on a DL580

We are looking at upgrading one of our existing servers by putting the 4th 700MHz cpu back into it from our firewall server.

We are able to pick up a cheap 6400R which has x2 550MHz cpu's which I am hoping may work in our other DL580 (firewall server)

Will this work? And is the RAM also compatible?

Cheers

Hi Sam71,

take a look to this:

in order to find the compatibility of your specific DL580

You cannot mix different processors in a server. All installed processors must be of the same type, have the same clock speed, same amount of cache memory. 6400R supported only Pentium III Xeon 500MHz and 550 MHz CPUs, while DL580 supported Pentium III Xeon 700MHz and 900 MHz CPUs (at least theoretically, because there some problems with 900 MHz CPUs, so I'm not sure if Compaq actually released them to the market). Memory is also incompatible: 6400R used 50ns and 60ns EDO memory, while DL580 used PC100 ECC SDRAM memory.

Hi,

Is this any use?

The 700Mhz PIII Xeon CPU Option part number for DL580 G1 is 174448-B21 (This is the 1Mb L2 Cache version) This is suitable for both ML570G1 and DL580G1 systems.

The 2Mb L2 cache version is Option part number 174449-B21.

Hi,

Sorry - I meant to add the CPU and memory kit part numbers to my earlier reply.
(See attached image).

Mixing cpu speeds will not work. Compaq servers are part number specific.
You might want to keep the 6400 for a back up.

Good Luck
