Unit Environment and
Operating Conditions
General Unit Operating Guidelines
Keep the computer away from excessive moisture, direct moisture and the extremes of heat
and cold, to ensure that unit is operated within the specified operating range.
Leave a 4 in (10.2 cm) clearance on all vented sides of the computer to permit the required
airflow.
Never restrict airflow into the computer by blocking any vents or air intakes.
Do not stack computers on top of each other or place computers so near each other that
they are subject to each other's re-circulated or preheated air.
Occasionally clean the air vents on the front, back, and any other vented side of the
computer. Lint, dust and other foreign matter can block the vents and limit the airflow.
If the computer is to be operated within a separate enclosure, intake and exhaust ventilation
must be provided on the enclosure, and the same operating guidelines listed above will still
apply.
Temperature Range
Operating: 50° to 95° F (10° to 35° C)
Non-operating: -22° to 140° F( -30° to 60° C)
Relative Humidity
Operating: 10% to 90% (non-condensing at ambient)
Non-operating: 5% to 95% (non-condensing at ambient)
Maximum Altitude
Operating: 10,000 ft (3048 m)
(unpressurized)
Non-operating: 30,000 ft (9000 m)
NOTE: Operating temperature is de-rated 1.0 deg C per 1000 ft (300 m) to 10,000 ft (3000 m)
above sea level, no direct sustained sunlight. Maximum rate of change is 10 deg C/Hr. The upper
limit may be limited by the type and number of options installed.

Memory
DDR SYNCH DRAM NON-ECC MEMORY
The Intel 946GZ Express chipset supports non-ECC DDR2 memory up to PC2-5300 (667-MHz). Memory upgrades are
accomplished by adding single or multiple DIMMs of the same or varied sizes. This chart does not represent all possible
memory configurations.
CAUTION: You must shut down the computer and disconnect the power cord before adding or removing memory
modules. Regardless of the power-on state, voltage is always supplied to the memory modules as long as the computer is
plugged in to an active AC outlet. Adding or removing memory modules while voltage is present may cause irreparable
damage to the memory modules or system board.
HP recommends dual-channel symmetric configurations for maximum performance.
For best performance, add the same amount of total memory to each channel and do not mix speeds. For dual-channel
symmetric performance, the total amount of memory in each channel must be equal. If speeds are mixed, speed will default
to the slowest DIMM.
MAXIMUM MEMORY
Supports up to 2-GB of DDR2 SYNCH DRAM. Not all memory configurations possible are represented below.
