cooler for HP ProLiant DL385 G1

Hello,
I've HP ProLiant DL385 G1 with one cpu.

I want add a second CPU.
The HP kit (cpu+cooler) seem out of stock (at least in France)

I can purchase an opteron 265 from AMD, but I also want a cooler compatible
with HP ProLiant DL385 G1 case and motherboard.

Do you known if cooler need to be HP specific, or if I can just purchase a
socket 940 cooler ? and do you have a suggestion for a cooler ?

Re: cooler for HP ProLiant DL385 G1

thank you a lot for all these info.

Just a confirmation : 383337-001 is nammed " Processor power module (PPM) - 12VAC, 105A - For use with 2.6GHz processor"

I suppose we can use it with processor 1.8Ghz (which just need less power than 2.6 Ghz).

So we have now just to buy the 383337-001 and 378910-001 from HP France with the link you gave here, and an opteron 265 at any AMD reseller.

I've now another idea: do you think the ProLiant DL385 G1 accept opteron 285 cpu ?

If I buy one 383337-001, one 378910-001, two opteron 285 (2.6 Ghz), and I remove (and sell on Ebay) the old opteron 265, I can upgrade from one Opteron 165 1.8 Ghz to two opteron 285 2.6 Ghz ?

regards, thank you a lot for tips and info

Read at the last message : "I can upgrade from one Opteron 265 1.8 Ghz to two opteron 285 2.6 Ghz" instead

Re: cooler for HP ProLiant DL385 G1

hi

yes PPM and heatsink are standard for any of those processors

yes the 285 is available for that server
checkc this

and yes you can have 1 Proc 265 right now and update to 2 285 Proc

Re: cooler for HP ProLiant DL385 G1

I received the package and an AMD Opteron.

Unfortunatelly, at boot, the system first display the two Opteron 265, then

"Unsupported processor Deteted in Socket 2" and the system halt.

I checked carrefully, and the first processor was a OST265FAA6CB and the processor I bought an OSA265FAA6CB

The difference is processor power
(OSA = "standard", OST = 68W? )

Re: cooler for HP ProLiant DL385 G1

hi

I don't know what the operating is but in the case is W2000/W2003 update your System ROM (BIOS) to the latest version available

Re: cooler for HP ProLiant DL385 G1

hi

something else I forgot after updating System ROM and if the issue continues also try swapping processors there is something for Processors called stepping is like versions(enhancements) for processors
so the recommendation is install processor with lowest stepping in slot 1.

check these 2 links
Support For AMD Opteron Processors With Mixed CPU Stepping Levels In ProLiant Servers
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c01209579〈=en&cc=us&taskId=101&prodSeriesId=428936&prodTypeId=15351

stepping

so
try update System ROM
if continue swap processors

and let us know

Re: cooler for HP ProLiant DL385 G1

I can reboot server only saturday morning, (after 2* one hour or travel), so I cannot do a lot of test.
Reading http://www.cpu-world.com/info/id/AMD-K8-identification.html#Opteron_OEM_processors, both OST265FAA6CB and OSA265FAA6CB have the same stepping (CB at end mean E6). CpuZ.exe from http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php show "JH9-E6" for the OST265FAA6CB . Everest show "JH-E6"

The only different (the third letter, T in the processeur actually on the server, A in the other) is about power(tdp). I'll try find an
OST265FAA6CB

Re: cooler for HP ProLiant DL385 G1

the correct link is http://www.cpu-world.com/info/id/AMD-K8-identification.html#Opteron_OEM_processors for processor specification.

Thank you a lot Karlo for the reference for the HP cooler and the HP PPM. Without this reference, we were not able to add the second CPU.
