Smartmemory

Just tried installing vmware on my microserver, and got some message about admission check failed. Seems it's because I currently only have 2gb installed, bring my planned upgrade ahead of schedule :(

 

Is hp smart memory really worth it? The additional cost is half a cpu upgrade. Is it really the only stuff that doesn't show errors on boot up?

I have not had any issues using non-HP memory.

I try to buy memory from someone that makes their own chips:

Samsung-Crucial-SK Hynix

after that I would go with Kingston-DataRam-Mushkin

There is no difference in the memory at all

 

Hp buy in the ram and add a spd string so the bios will know if you paid for hp ram

there is no performance gain no magic low power states no nothing

 

its just hp's way of getting you to buy ram at double the price

 

also the hp microserver documents even state that the microserver runs 1.35v ram at 1.5v so there is no point even getting low power ddr3

i'm running a stick of Kingston 8GB RAM (in conjunction with the standard 2GB for a total of ten) and have not had any issues at all.

I have never had any messages re not using Smart Memory - it must be a configurable option somewhere.
