Intel's numbering is 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.
64-bit computing on 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/info/em64t for

SATA hardware RAID is not supported on Linux systems. The Linux kernel, with built-in software RAID,
provides excellent functionality and performance. It is a good alternative to hardware-based RAID. Please
visit http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00060684/c00060684.pdf for RAID
capabilities with Linux.
All drives must be identical in type and capacity
All RAID arrays must be less than 2 TB
NOTE 1: Requires identical hard drives (speeds, capacity, interface. Specific user-configured hardware SAS
RAID configurations are supported on this Linux system. Please visit:

NOTE: Configurations less than 1 GB are not supported on Windows Vista 64 or Vista 64 downgrade to
XP 64. DIMMs should be distributed across all three memory channels for optimal performance.
Each processor supports up to 3 channels of DDR3 memory. To realize full performance at least 1
DIMM must be inserted into each channel.
The CPUs determine the speed at which the memory is clocked. If a 1066MHz capable CPU is used in
the system, the maximum speed the memory will run at is 1066MHz regardless of the specified speed of
the memory.

HP Insight Diagnostics Offline Edition
The diagnostics utility enables you to perform testing and to view critical computer hardware and
software configuration information from various sources. This utility enables you to:
Run diagnostics
View the hardware configuration of the system
Key features and benefits
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:
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
Access Panel Key Lock
ACPI-Ready Hardware
No
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

Introduction
Intel's latest-generation microarchitecture represents the next step in unprecedented processor performance and dynamic scalability.
Designed from the ground up to take advantage of hafnium-based Intel® 45nm hi-k metal gate silicon technology, Intel®
Microarchitecture (Nehalem) unleashes parallel processing performance enabled by Intel® QuickPath technology providing an
integrated memory controller and high-speed interconnect per independent processing core.
Performance and Features
Maximum multitasking performance Intel® Microarchitecture (Nehalem) offers the latest in processor innovation, including:
Dynamic scalability, managed cores, threads, cache, interfaces, and power for energy-efficient performance on demand.
Design and performance scalability for servers, workstations, notebooks and desktops with support for 2-8+ cores and up to
16+ threads with Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology), and scalable cache sizes, system
interconnects, and integrated memory controllers.
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology delivers additional performance automatically when needed by taking advantage of the
processor's power and thermal headroom. This enables increased performance of both multi-threaded and single-threaded
workloads.
Intel Hyper-Threading Technology brings high-performance applications into mainstream computing with 1-16+ threads
optimized for a new generation multi-core processor architecture.
Scalable shared memory of Intel® QuickPath technology features memory distributed to each processor with integrated
memory controllers and high-speed point-to-point interconnects to unleash the performance of future versions of nextgeneration Intel® multi-core processors.
Multi-level shared cache improves performance and efficiency by reducing latency to frequently used data.
Turbo Boost Technology
This technology now built into Xeon 3500 Series Quad-Core processors will increase the speed of your processor on demand (from
OS) if the CPU is operating below power / thermal specifications:
Benefit of Turbo Boost (how much CPU speed up) depends on number of active cores
Likelihood of Turbo Boost operation increases when less cores are active
Likelihood of Turbo Boost operation increases when dynamic power mgt is enabled
