Upgrade Path:
  • Virtually any configuration up to 32GB can be reached using 4GB and 8GB QR RDIMMs up to four modules.
  • Note from Rod: Dell say that a 32GB configuration can only be achieved with 4x 8GB Quad Rank DDR3-1066 modules, and that 8GB modules in the Dual Rank DDR3-1333 speed are not supported in this system, but the information is out of date.
  • We have had many customers successfully use the Samsung 8GB DDR3-1866 8GB dual-rank modules in this system with 100% success, and the modules will clock down as low as DDR2-800 as required.
  • DDR3-1600 modules automatically clock down to 1333MT/s, DDR3-1066 and DDR3-800 depending on which Intel Xeon model is installed and how many module Banks are populated.
  • Due to chipset limitations, DDR3 Quad Rank memory will operate at DDR3-1066 in the first Dual Channel bank.
  • Adding Quad Rank modules in the second Dual Channel bank will operate at DDR3-800.
  • Third Dual Channel bank, if present, is disabled.
  • This system supports six (6) Single or Dual Rank Reg ECC RDIMMs or four (4) Quad Rank RDIMMs or ECC UDIMMs.
  • Mixing Registered ECC and Unbuffered ECC modules is not supported within this system.
  • Intel Xeon 3400 series processors use Registered memory.
  • Intel Celeron, Pentium, and Core i processors use ECC-Unbuffered memory, not Registered memory
