Aurora R11 - RAM and HDD upgrades

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am considering buying a Aurora R11 with the minimum RAM configuration (ie 16 GB), and then upgrading it with 128 GB (4 x 32 GB) non-XMP RAM. I saw two 32 GB  DDR4 UDIMM models, which seem to be compatible with the R11 mb :

  • Samsung M378A4G43MB1-CTD
  • Crucial CT32G4DFD832A

I also read on the Community Site that I will need to modify the BIOS setup by turning off the OverClocking feature.

Any retun of experience on these 2 RAMs used in a R11 ?

 

About storage, I would like to add one 3.5 HDD (4 or 6 TB) plus one 2.5 HDD (4 TB), both from Seagate Barracuda. Is it feasible, without risk ?

 

Many thanks in advance, for your help.

According to the manual, it might not support 128 gb

You are right about the manual, for the RAM. The same applies for the HDDs.

But it only specifies the limits about what can be bought on the DELL site in the various possible configurations, but not the physical limits of the PC itself.

Obviously, it is perfectly possible to have 128 GB of RAM (non XMP) on such a hardware, as well as bigger HDDs.

Hence my two questions on these upgrades.

Yea I know the hard drives are fine, as long as your PC didn't come with a storage drive as there is only one 3.5" caddy.  But the Aurora lineup is especially picky about RAM.  I wouldn't be surprised if you're limited to 64gb, the amount validated by Dell.  People have enough issues just trying to post with third party RAM.

I still believe the R11 can support 128 Gb (4x32) 2666 Mhz RAM, non XMP, overclocking disabled in the BIOS.

Anybody who has upgraded his R11 to 128 Gb ?

Many thanks in advance.
