Dear community

Equipment:
- DL380G5
- 2 phys QuadCore x5460, 2x6MB 3.1GHz CPU
- 32 GB RAM


Facts:
- When I configure the DL380 with only 1 phys CPU the bios says it will work with 3.x GHz
- When I configure the DL380 with 2 cpus, each phys cpu will only works with 2.5 GHz

I've checked the power settings in the bios...reconfigured from
'Dynamic Power Savin' to 'Static High Performance', but no success so far, same results.


Can someone explain what's happen here?
Is there any switch to show up each with 3.1GHz?
Any performance reduce trough the amount of memory or the double cpu's? Is it normal?

thanks,
best regards,

Have you upgraded to the latest system ROM? There's a CD on HP's download site but itheir web isn't working at the moment.

Have you tried both CPUs in the first socket to see if both are reported as 3.1GHz? It certainly isn't normal although the best BIOS setting for dynamic power is OS control.

done. failure on my side.
One cpu was only an 2.5ghz ... what a shame ....


I've receive a cpu in a package with description "3.1ghz 5460..."...and inside there's an 5420 with 2.5ghz ...
Back to HP ...

Thanks, best regards
