Ram for Dell Poweredge SC1430
Hoping you can clear something up for me as I dont want to mess up an order and I know someone can answer this really quickly.
We have a dell poweredge sc1430. It currently does everything in our school, its dc, sims server, file server, print server etc. It currently has only 2gb of ram which Im looking to upgrade. Now I went onto the crucial website and got back that it needed 240pin ddr2 pc2 5200.
So I went onto misco and had a look and came up with this:
Kingston Dell Equivalent 1Gb PC5300 DDR2 DDR - Misco.co.uk
I sent them a message to check it was compatible and they got back to me to say that it wasnt becuase I needed to buy a pair.....now this was fine as i wanted 2 anyway but they said I needed this:
KINGSTON Memory/2GB Kit of 2pcs Dell PowerEdge 195 - Misco.co.uk
Now usually I would risk it for a biscuit but being as its our main dc etc I wanted to run it by some others.
Any help would be massively appreciated.
On a seperate note about the same server, it has a free slot for another cpu. Now does anyone know if I need to match the current cpu or can I just chuck in a cpu with the correct socket. Is there anything extra I need to know about having more than 1 physical cpu before I give it a go.
