I know that HP's LH Pro servers take non-HP RAM (168 Pin EDO) , but on every
boot you get a message during POST similar to

DIMM 2: NON HP RAM INSTALLED
DIMM 3: NON HP RAM INSTALLED

but apart from that it works normally.  I'm not sure about the later models
though - we never had to upgrade any of the more recent systems.




(Incidentally, I don't recommend the LH Pro - We had a lot of problems with
random HDD failures and RAID cards failing to switch to the hot spare.)
