NOTE: 1: HT indicates that the processor model supports Intel Hyper-Threading Technology. Turbo indicates the maximum potential frequency increment when using Intel Turbo Boost Technology, with 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 cores active. DDR3 speed is the maximum memory speed of the processor. Actual memory speed may depend on the quantity and type of DIMMs installed. For the Intel 5000, and 5600 Series, the letter preceding the model number indicates the performance/wattage of the processor. "X" denotes High Performance/Wattage; "E" denotes Enterprise Performance/Wattage (Mainstream); and "L" denotes Lower Wattage. Up to 2 processors supported. Performance configurations include two processors. Mixing different processor models is not supported.

2: If only one processor is installed, only half the DIMM slots are available. When populating with the 16GB Memory Kits (Quad-Rank), only 12 DIMMs can be populated. For G6 and G7 servers using Xeon 5600 series processors, the default memory speed is 1333 MHz with either one or two DIMMs per channel. For G6 and G7 servers using Xeon 5500 series processors, an RBSU option is available to disable 1333 MHz operation (which will result in 1067 MHz operation). UDIMM support is only on 12-slot servers. Depending on the memory configuration and processor model, the memory speed may run at 1333 MHz, 1066 MHz, or 800 MHz. Click here to see the Online Memory Configuration Tool .

3: Using PC3-8500R DDR3 Registered (RDIMM) memory, operating at 800 MHz when fully populated at 2 DIMMs per Channel in 12 slots.

4: Using PC3-10600E DDR3 Unbuffered (UDIMM) memory, operating at 1066 MHz when fully populated at 2 DIMMs per Channel in 12 slots.

5: The system board has 2 PCI connectors, but the below riser cards have the actual PCI slots, to which PCI cards attach. Up to six available PCI-Express Gen2 slots, optional mixed PCI-X / PCI-Express or x16 PCI configurations available.

6: Indicates the number of physical electrical lanes running to the connector.

7: Default bus assignment (in decimal). Inserting cards with PCI bridges may alter the actual bus assignment number.

8: HP ProLiant DL servers no longer ship standard with a 12-foot NEMA 5-15P to C13 power cords (227099-001) that allow connection to 110 V US wall outlets in a home or office. ProLiant DL servers are primarily connected to PDU's in data center racks so they now ship standard with only a PDU 6-foot C-14 to C13 power cord (142258-002). If a user wishes to power a ProLiant DL server using a 110 V receptacle (NEMA-15), the 12-foot NEMA 5-15 to C13 power cord (227099-001) must be ordered separately. Also available: 110 volt 6-Foot NEMA 5-15p to C13 (AF556A).

9: One processor models include four fans. Two processor models include six fans.

10: Maximum resolution available via iLO 3 remote console for ProLiant is 1280 x 1024 (for 32 bit color) and 1600 x 1200 (DVR max resolution).

11: Gen8 hard drives are incompatible to Generation 7 and below servers.
