Required cabling
Power supply
HP has a new Common Slot Power Supply bay for ProLiant power. This design provides commonality in power supplies across multiple platforms to save on the cost of spares and allows HP to offer multiple power solutions to fit the customers' needs. HP's new Common Slot power supplies are designed for highest efficiency to provide power efficiency without degrading performance of the ProLiant. Power Supplies will have efficiency ratings up to 92%. There are three Right Size power options available, depending on the configuration of the r server. To make sure to select the correct power supply to meet the configuration, we suggest that to use the HP Power Advisor to decide the "Right-Size" for the configuration.
Security - Trusted Platform Module
The TPM (Trusted Platform Module) is a microcontroller chip that can securely store artifacts used to authenticate the server platform. These artifacts can include passwords, certificates and encryption keys. Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption (BitLocker) is a data protection feature available in Windows Server 2008. BitLocker leverages the enhanced security capabilities of a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 1.2. The TPM works with BitLocker to help protect user data and to ensure that a server running Windows Server 2008 has not been tampered with while the system was offline.

NOTE: 1: HT indicates that the processor model supports Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology.

Turbo indicates the maximum potential frequency increment when using Intel Turbo Boost Technology, with 4, 3, 2, and 1 cores active.

DDR3 speed is the maximum memory speed of the processor. Actual memory speed may depend on the quantity and type of DIMMs installed.

For the Intel 5600 and 5500 Series, the letter preceding the model number indicates the performance/wattage of the processor. "X" denotes High Performance/Wattage; "E" denotes Enterprise Performance/Wattage (Mainstream); and "L" denotes Lower Wattage.

Customers transitioning from 5500 series processors to 5600 series processors must include a third fan along with the two fans present on the server.

2: Depending on the memory configuration and processor model, the memory speed may run at 1333 MHz, 1066 MHz, or 800 MHz. Click here to see the online memory configuration tool .

3: Default bus assignment (in decimal). Inserting cards with PCI bridges may alter the actual bus assignment number.

4: Maximum resolution available via ProLiant Onboard Administrator remote console is 1280 x 1024.

5: Does not include power supply or processor heat sink fans. Processor heat sink fans packed in processor kit.
