    HP DL145 G2 servers

    I'm buying a pair of these and I want to whack another processor into one of them. Simple question I hope. Will the server come with two heatsinks and therefore be able to get away with buying a standard AMD boxed Opteron 246 for £107 or do I need to spend £226 on an HP "specific" Opteron 246?

    I suspect I know the answer to this but I thought I'd ask anyway

    Well the dual processor capable DL140 I just bought didn't come with a heatsink for the second cpu so I guess you gotta get the correct one.

    Wether you buy it with a processor of can get it seperately I wouldn't know.

    Yeah, I've made the order out with the HP part. Bunch of rip off merchants

    The server seemed like such good value too.

    Oh, the irony

    Apparently there is a promotion on with those servers atm, buy the second CPU with the server and get the cost of the CPU back

    Marvellous
