Level of Importance:Optional

Dell recommends the customer review specifics about the update to determine if it applies to your system. The update contains changes that impact only certain configurations, or provides new features that may/may not apply to your environment.

Important Information

This BIOS release includes an update for a correctable single bit error rate issue on one specific set of industry-standard memory DIMMs shipped in Dell systems between July 2010 and October 2010. These DIMMs may result in an increased rate of E2111 (correctable memory errors). If you are experiencing what you believe to be an inordinate occurrence of this behavior; this optional BIOS revision may resolve the situation. If you are not experiencing this behavior with your system, you do not need to install this BIOS. For affected systems, this BIOS update has an impact on power savings This optional BIOS modifies DIMM power management settings for specific configurations, only those with the potentially affected DIMMs, to eliminate the condition which can cause excessive errors. This BIOS may disable the Package C6 power state. Disabling the Package C6 power state will result in increased system power consumption at system idle, but will not impact system runtime power consumption. The BIOS update will not modify DIMM power management for systems that do not have the affected DIMMs.

Fixes & Enhancements

These errors are primarily exhibited as E2111 (correctable memory errors). This issue is not unique to Dell servers and is resolved in this BIOS revision. As always, customers who need assistance with BIOS updates may contact Dell technical support.
