Intel processor numbers are not a measurement of higher performance. Processor numbers
differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See:
http://www.intel.com/products/processor_number/ for details.
Intel® 64 Architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating
system, device drivers, and applications enabled for Intel 64 Architecture. Processor will not
operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 Architecture -enabled BIOS. Performance
will vary depending on your hardware and software configurations. See:
http://www.intel.com/technology/64bitextensions for more information.
Quad-Core and Dual-Core are new technologies designed to improve performance of
multithreaded software products and hardware-aware multitasking operating systems and may
require appropriate operating system software for full benefits; check with software provider to
determine suitability; not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of
these technologies.

NOTE: Although HP Personal Workstations can be ordered with the HP Installer Kit for Linux and
an IEEE 1394 card, HP cannot provide customer support for this configuration. Please refer to the
Linux Hardware Support Matrix (http://www.hp.com/support/linux_hardware_matrix) for details, and

Memory Configuration
(Supported)
PC2-5300E DDR2-667 ECC Unbuffered or PC2-6400E DDR2-800 ECC Unbuffered RAM DIMMs
Only Error Checking and Correcting unbuffered DDR2 DIMMs are supported and must be either x8
or x16 width. Memory upgrades are accomplished by adding DIMMs of the same or varied sizes.
The Intel chipset supports both PC2-5300 DDR2-667 and the PC2-6400E DDR2-800 ECC
unbuffered memory. It is suggested to not mix ECC and non-ECC memory.
For best performance the total amount and type of memory loaded into Channel A and Channel B
should be the same. If it is not, your computer will see all the RAM installed but will run the memory
controller at a lower performance mode. Although not required, for best performance add the
memory in pairs rather than as a single DIMM (two 1 GB DIMMs will have better performance than
a single 2 GB DIMM). Also, add the memory into both channels (e.g., one in socket 1 and one in
socket 3) to take advantage of dual channel performance. If you have unused slots within a
channel, make them socket 2 and socket 4. This provides the best margin for the memory bus. If
you are only using 1 DIMM, install it in socket 1.
POSSIBLE MEMORY CONFIGURATIONS
Not all memory configurations possible are represented below. Please install memory in pairs.
Configurations using three DIMMs are not supported by HP.

System Technical Specifications
HP Insight Diagnostics simplifies the process of effectively identifying, diagnosing, and
isolating the hardware issues. In addition to robust management tools, service tools can be
invaluable in quickly resolving system problems. To streamline the service process and
resolve problems quickly, it is necessary to have the right information available at the time
that a service call is placed. The primary information requirement, which is also the one that
provides the greatest insight into potential system issues, is the configuration of the system.
Insight Diagnostics helps provide higher system availability. Typical uses of the Insight
Diagnostics are:
ACPI-Ready Hardware
BIOS
BIOS 32-bit Services
PCI 3.0 Support
ATAPI
BBS
WMI Support
Testing and diagnosing apparent hardware failures
Documenting system configurations for upgrade planning, standardization, inventory
tracking, disaster recovery, and maintenance
Sending configuration information to another location for more in-depth analysis
Advanced Configuration and Power Management Interface (ACPI)
Allows the system to wake from a low power mode
Controls system power consumption, making it possible to place individual cards and
peripherals in a low-power or powered-off state without affecting other elements of the
system
Standard BIOS 32-bit Service Directory Proposal
Full BIOS support for PCI Express through industry-standard interfaces

WMI is Microsoft's implementation of Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) for Windows.
WMI is fully compliant with the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) Common Information
Model (CIM) and WBEM specifications.
Provides more control over how and from what devices the workstation will boot.
Users can define a specific date and time for the system to power on.

NORMAL - normal temperature ranges
ALERTED - excessive temperatures are detected. Raises a flag so action can be taken to
avoid shutdown or provide for a smoother system shutdown
SHUTDOWN - excessive temperatures are encountered. Automatically shuts down the
computer without warning before hardware component damage occurs
Provides secure, fail-safe ROM image management from a central network console
Allows the system to enter and resume from low power modes (sleep states)
Controls system power consumption, making it possible to place individual cards and
peripherals in a low-power or powered-off state without affecting other elements of the
system
Supports ACPI 2.0 for full compatibility with 64-bit operating systems
