We've had lots of trouble with PSU fans going. If 1 of the three tiny fans
stops, the box shuts down. Overkill or what?

We got DL360 Pizza Boxes here, and there is a big problem with the CPU fans
going out and causing the servers to drop, I have had to replace 5 fans in
as many mobnths and sometimes the same fan on the same system.  Do not
believe just because they are 1U that you can stick 42 in a box and not have
problems. The physics of thermal conduction is going to get ya. 
For citrix servers, I believe a DL380 is a much sturdier box, and has been
tons more reliable than the DL 360's

What is the purpose of putting a 5302 controller into the box???  The 5i
works quite nicely.

Hi Dave
I mean the DL360. 
We are looking at quite a few in a 42u rack .. space is tight.
I have read the product guides and it does indeed say it is supported.I have
spoken to people at Compaq who say it is supported and it isnt supported.

Don't you mean the 380 ?... The 360 only has 2 drive bays and so I think
you'd be wasting your cash. I've looked in the Compaq Product Guide for Feb
02 and both the 360 and the 380 are supported platforms for the 5302 ( 32 or
64Mb Cache)  and the 5302 Fibre Channel

Bit off topic but i was just wondering if anyone has achieved what im after:
Is it possible to add a Compaq 5302 Raid Controller into a Compaq DL 360 G2
ie adding the 5300 internally and bypassing the onboard 5i
