NOTE: 1. DIMM slots 4 and 5 are not accessible when either the E5-2699 v3, the E5-2697 v3, the E5-2643 v3, the E5-2637 v3, or the E5-2667 v3 is used. In a 2 processor configuration, there are twelve (12) total available DIMM slots.HT indicates that the processor model supports Intel Hyper-Threading Technology.Turbo indicates the maximum potential frequency when using Intel Turbo Boost Technology. The frequency boost increment is dependent on the processor SKU and the number of active cores. In general, a higher boost increment is obtained when fewer cores are active.DDR4 speed is the maximum memory speed of the processor. Actual memory speed may depend on the quantity and type of DIMMs installed.Supports 1 or 2 processors. Mixing different processor models is not supported.For the Intel C610 Chipset E5-2600 v3 Series, the letter preceding the model number indicates the Product Line (E3, E5, E7); 2600x, 2 = number of CPUs in a Node, 6 is socket/segment designation, 00 = Processor SKU, and x = L for low power SKUs.The WS460c Gen9 includes two I/O mezzanine expansion slots. A processor must be installed in processor slot 1 for access to the first mezzanine expansion slot (expansion slot 1). A processor must be installed in processor slot 2 for access to the second mezzanine expansion slot (expansion slot 2). All processors within the server must be identical.All processors support Intel Hyper-Threading and Intel Turbo Boost Technologies except the E5-2603 v3 and E5-2609 v3. The letter Lfollowing the model number indicates denotes lower wattage.The processor model as well as the memory configuration determines the maximum speed memory can operate.

2. Support for 64GB LRDIMM and 32GB RDIMM available later in 2015.HPE memory from previous generation servers (DDR3) is not compatible with this server. HPE SmartMemory is required to realize the memory performance improvements and enhanced functionality listed in this document for Gen9. LRDIMM and RDIMM are distinct memory technologies and cannot be mixed within a server. Depending on the memory configuration and processor model, the memory speed may run at 2133 MHz, 1866 MHz, or 1600 MHz.

3. Windows 7, 8.1 directly presiding on system (i.e. "OS on bare-metal"), is supported only with HPE Flex-10 10Gb 2-port 536FLB with basic network functions only. All other adapters supported with use on server OS or hypervisor environment only.FlexFabric supported only with server OS and/or in a virtualized environment using hypervisors.Supports FCoE, , TCP/IP offload engine, hardware-based accelerated iSCSI, iSCSI boot, and autosensing 10GbE/1GbE.Each port is autosensing the speed, and can interoperate with 1Gb HPE BladeSystem c-Class interconnect components. Both ports will operate at the same speed. FlexFabric capabilities require the use of an HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric or Flex10/10D module.

4. FlexibleLOMs are not compatible with prior generation c-Class server blades.

5. Use of GPU options is limited to a 30°C operating environment when using NVMe on theWS460c Gen9.

For NVMe support, please select the NVMe FIO setting (825555-B21) available on CTO modelsonly.

The ProLiant WS460c Gen9 server includes the HPE hot-plug small form factor (SFF) SmartDrive carrier for enhanced management and reduced maintenance errors. HPE drives from previous generation servers (prior to Gen8) are not compatible with the ProLiant WS460c Gen9 drive bays.

6. The above options are intended for integrated hypervisor virtualization environments.
