N54L Upgrade

Hi all,

 

Apologies, I've been lurking the forum for an answer but had no luck.

 

Could anyone tell me if this Patriot Signature Kit (PSD316G1333KH) is compatible with an N54L. I am aware it isn't ECC, I don't believe I need it for my use. However if anyone knows whether this would be compatible and whether there would be issues with the heatsink on it physically fitting that would be great.

 

This forum is an amazing source of information, kudos to those of you that share their knowledge!

N54L servers are tetchy about supporting 16GB of RAM.  HP only officially acknowledges support for 8GB on the N54L, so your mileage may vary.

 

The N54L does not require ECC memory.  I ran mine with 8GB of non-ECC the entire time I owned it.  My RAM had heatspreaders (G.Skill) and that was not an issue for clearance; since these don't have extended "fingers" on top, they should fit, but there is no guarantee the server will support the 16GB kit.

The N54L seems more tolerant of different RAM than the N40L.

 

Here's a Wikia for RAM for the Gen7s: http://n40l.wikia.com/wiki/Memory

 

Here's a thread about N40L RAM specifically: http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/5041-n40l-memory-compatibility/
