BIOS Notes: Requires BIOS Revision 2.30 for 128GB LRDIMMs 2400MHz DIMMs require E5-2600 V4 or E5-1600 V4 E5-2600 V4 requires BIOS Revision 2.00 or newer E5-1600 V4 requires BIOS Revision 2.20 or newer
The HPE Proliant Dl60 G9 is a 1U rackmount server which can come in a dual or single processor configuration. In a dual processor configuration, it can address up to 1TB of LRDIMMs(8 X 128GB) or 256GB of RDIMMs(8 X 32GB) with a maximum frequency of 2400MHz with a V4 processor or 2133MHz with a V3 processor. This server's processors options include the entire E5-2600 v3/v4 and E5-1600 v3/v4 lineup, but the E5-2600 v4's require BIOS revision 2.00 so it is worthwhile to double check before you try to install E5-2600 v4 processors. The E5-1600 v3/v4 series processors are limited to single processor configurations and the E5-1600 V4 requires BIOS revision 2.20 or newer in order to be addressed. Storage wise it can be equipped with up to 4 LFF 3.5" Drives and it features up to 3 PCIe expansion slots with the correct risers. The base model comes with a 550W power supply but can be upgraded with a redundant 900W configuration.
You can expect for the system to consume 71 Watts at idle with a dual E5-2650 v3 configuration with 8 sticks of 32GB DDR4 RDIMM's, 4 300GB 15K SAS drives and the standard 550W power supply. At the national average of 10 cents per Kilowatt-hour it will cost roughly $62 to idle for one year. At full-load it is expected to take 368.76 watts and will cost roughly $323 to run for a full year.
