NOTE: The server supports two or four processors. One and three processors are not supported.
NOTE: All processors within the server must be identical.
NOTE: If upgrading an existing BL680c G5 server to a different processor, the server's ROM must be flashed to the latest BIOS prior to the upgrade.

Cache Memory Up to 16 MB level 3 cache memory

Chipset Intel® 7300 chipset

Memory TypePC2-5300 Fully Buffered DIMMs operating at 667 MHz
Standard 8GB (2 x 4GB)
Maximum 128GB (16 x 8GB DIMMs)
64GB (16 x 4GB Low Power DIMMs)
NOTE: See the "DIMM installation guidelines" section for memory installation rules.

Network Controllers

Four (4) embedded Gigabit Ethernet network adapter ports, plus (1) additional management network adapter port:

  • Two (2) embedded NC373i Multifunction Gigabit Server Adapters with TCP/IP offload engine for Microsoft Windows, iSCSI boot, and optional accelerated iSCSI
  • One (1) NC326i Dual Port Gigabit Server Adapter
  • One (1) additional embedded 10/100 network adapter dedicated to iLO 2 management

NOTE: The Gigabit Ethernet adapters transmit from the server at 2000 Mbps, full duplex per port. However, within a Linux environment, the speed can be reduced or "throttled" using a feature available within the Linux operating system.

Once the adapter signal reaches the interconnect within the blade enclosure and communicates outside the blade enclosure to the LAN, the blade interconnect uplink types and settings determine the cable media, speed, duplex mode, and auto negotiation mode. Interconnects are available with Ethernet uplinks supporting 10/100/1000T, 10/100/1000 SFP, 1000 SX fiber, and 10Gb speeds.


Multifunction Networking

The embedded multifunction NC373i combines standard Gigabit Ethernet networking, TCP/IP offload engine (TOE) acceleration for Windows, iSCSI boot, and optional accelerated iSCSI into a single adapter.

  • TOE moves the processing of data in the TCP protocol stack from the server CPU to the network card, freeing CPU cycles for other activities. With TOE, network communications are improved, and server efficiency is increased. The NC373i offers TOE for Microsoft® Windows.
  • The iSCSI boot allows the BL680c G5 to boot from a remote operating system (OS) image located on a storage area network (SAN) within a Red Hat or SUSE Linux environment. The BL680c G5 uses an iSCSI firmware image (iSCSI boot option ROM) making the remote disk drive appear as a local, bootable C: drive. The BL680c G5 is configured to connect to and boot from the iSCSI target disk on the network and download the OS image from the iSCSI target disk. The iSCSI boot option ROM is supplied by HP at no cost. The additional cost and mezzanine slot usage of an add-in iSCSI HBA card is not required. Additionally, the HP iSCSI boot solution includes scripts to significantly simplify the installation process.

I/O Expansion Slots Three I/O expansion mezzanine slots; one Type I x4 PCIe (15 watts) and two x8 PCIe (25 watts).

Integrated Manageability HP Integrated Lights-Out 2 (iLO 2) - (includes but not limited to functionality in Integrated Lights-Out 2 Standard Blade Edition (iLO 2)

Storage Controller

The BL680c G5 includes an integrated Smart Array P400i Controller. The P400i is an x8 PCI Express serial attached SCSI (SAS) v1.0 embedded RAID controller and provides server performance and reliability through its support of advanced SCSI technology and RAID capabilities. The P400i includes 256MB of 40-bit ECC protected cache and supports RAID levels 0 (striping) and 1 (mirroring).

The controller supports both SAS and SATA hard drives letting you deploy drive technology as needed to fit your computing environment. The BL680c G5 provides two hot-plug drive bays for up to 1.0TB of SAS and 500GB of SATA storage.

Providing high availability data cache retention, the Smart Array P400i supports two battery backed write cache (BBWC) options:

  • BBWC for the existing 25MB cache.
  • Upgrade to 72-bit 512MB ECC protected cache with BBWC.

If additional direct or shared storage SAS or SATA drives are desired within the server blade enclosure, the BL680c G5 supports the StorageWorks SB40c Storage Blade through use of the HP PCI Express Mezzanine Pass-Thru Card installed in mezzanine slot 3.

Memory

NOTE: Memory configurations listed do not apply to "Factory Integrated Models".
NOTE: For a specific memory level, the best performance is achieved using a homogenous memory configuration.
DIMM installation guidelines:
  1. All memory must be PC2-5300 fully buffered DDR2 DIMMs operating at 667 MHz.
  2. Both DIMM slots in a memory bank must be populated.
  3. Banks must be populated in sequential alphabetic order, starting with bank A.
  4. Both DIMMs in a memory bank must be identical. Install identical DIMMs as pairs only, starting with DIMM socket 1, bank A.
  5. Standard memory and lower power DIMMs may be mixed within the same server, but not within the same memory bank (see #4 above).
  6. Low power DIMM kits save approximately 2 watts per server DIMM, plus any datacenter power savings resulting from reduced cooling of heat dissipated from the lower server watt usage.
  7. Multiple advanced memory protection (AMP) modes are supported based on fully buffered DIMM population and RBSU selection. The server blade defaults to advanced ECC.
Standard Memory
8GB (2 x 4GB) of PC2-5300, FBD DDR2-667 ECC DIMMs

Standard Memory Plus Optional Memory
Up to 116GB of memory is available with the installation of optional PC2-5300, FBD DDR2-667 DIMM memory expansion kits.

Standard Memory Replaced with Optional Memory
Up to 128GB of memory is available with the removal of standard memory and the installation of optional PC2-5300, FBD DDR2-667 DIMM memory expansion kits.
