Upgrade Path:
  • Virtually any configuration up to 128GB can be reached using 1, 2, 4 and 8GB modules.
  • DDR3-1333 modules automatically clock down to 1066MHz and 800MHz depending on which Intel Xeon model is installed and how many module Banks are populated.
  • Due to chipset limitations, DDR3 Quad Rank memory is limited to operate at a maximum of 1066MHz.
  • When two Quad Rank modules are installed per bank, the processor will automatically clock them down to 800MHz.
  • System only supports (6) Quad Rank DIMMs per CPU or (12) Quad Rank DIMMs with two CPUs.
  • The server supports both 1.5 V and 1.35 V DIMMs.
  • Mixing 1.5 V and 1.35 V DIMMs in the same server is supported for Intel Xeon 5600 series processor-based systems.
  • In such a case, all DIMMs operate at 1.5 V.
  • Intel Xeon 5500 series processor-based systems do not support 1.35 V DIMMs
