Proliant 6000 max CPU

I just picked up a 6000 cheap ($100) that came with 4 400's and 1.5 gig of ram and a 5300 array controller.But no hard drives but that aint a problem.
What I need to know is what is the max CPU's and what are the jumper settings?

Thanks,Scott

By settings you mean the bus to core ratios

- http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Home.jsp?locale=en_US&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=254916〈=en&cc=us

check out the user guides; maint and service guides

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual&locale=en_US&docIndexId=179911&taskId=101&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=254916

the PII 400 - 450 uses the same board as the PIII 500-550

on page 76 / 196 of the maint and service guide check out the bus to core ratio switch settings.

and you should find the setting on page 92
http://h200006.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/UCR/SupportManual/TPM_312237-003/TPM_312237-003.pdf

Bus/Core Ratio 1 2 3 4
400-MHz models ON ON ON OFF
450-MHz models OFF ON ON OFF
500-MHz models ON ON OFF OFF
550-MHz models OFF ON OFF OFF

Re: Proliant 6000 max CPU

Thanks so much for the help,Will try tommorrow to see if it will run at 550.
So far they will run at 400,450 and 500 could not find settings for anything faster.
If all goes good they should work.
this is what I have
Pentium II Xeon 500MHz Slot 2 CPUs 500/2M Q881ES

Thanks again,Scott

Well they wont run at 550 bummer.
They are marked PII 500 but they are Tanner core processors.

Thanks,Scott
