I am trying to figure out what kind of memory this Hp Proliant DL380 g4 needs.

I can see that it will take PC2-5300 ddr2 memory from this HP article http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?SearchText=311143-421.

What I can not figure out is if it needs PC2-5300r (registered) or PC2-5300F (Fully Buffered).

Does anyone know which of these it takes?


You don't have many memory options for this model, with its SIX DIMM slots and 12GB max. I'd strongly urge you to move on to different hardware, because the G4 platform was released in 2004.

See: HP Proliant DL380 G4 - Can this server still perform in 2011?

Use the HP ProLiant DL380 G4 Quickspecs to find real part numbers for components. The part numbers, 343055-B21, 343056-B21 and 343057-B21 describe the DIMMs compatible with the server. That's what you should search on. This is registered RAM.
