HP Proliant HDD replacement

I'm looking into replacing 2 out of 5 HD for a Proliant ML310e Gen7 server and the info out there is not clear enough if I can replace with newer hard drives.

Here are the specs:
10k SAS 300GB 653955

replaced with
10 SAS 300GB 652564

...or any other drive that would work with the current ones. Those two look similar but I'm not 100% sure.

Thank you!

They are the same size and so I think they should work fine. I have replaced Dell drives with IBM replacements (same size) and the replacement works fine (still today).

Those are technically the wrong drives  The part numbers you gave are for Gen8 servers and you stated that you have a Gen7 server.  

However, you can pull the Gen8 drives out of the caddy and install them into the Gen7 caddy and it will be fine.

They are identical, you've missed the -B21 off the end of the one that is the sales part no and the -001 off the end of the one that is the spare part number. The only difference is the cardboard box they come in.
