I wanted to upgrade my T3500 So I bought a 24 gig tri-channel memory, but I bought 3 8 gig modules.
After purchasing it, I discovered that the largest size memory module is 4 gig.
So, my question is, will 8 gig memory modules work? Re-stocking fee is 15 dollars, if I return the memory.
Thanks in advance!
Memory Type: DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-12800, DDR3 (ECC)
Maximum Memory: 24GB
Slots: 6 x 4 Gig per slot.
An answer 5 years late probably isn't much help, but I am currently running my (old) T3500 (E5520 processor) using 2 8-Gig memory modules (slots 1 & 2). O/S is Ubuntu Linux 16.04.3 and the O/S reports 16-Gig of memory available. So, (if anybody's out there), I curious if anyone else has done this and/or is Ubuntu "lying" to me about the available memory (i.e., really only using the first 4-Gig of each module)?? An answer less than 5 years from now gets extra points ;o)
2 working doesn't mean that 6 work. Its about memory hub being able to drive ram. When its Registered and Buffered you can support larger modules. If you overload the memory bus you fry the cpu.
Fully buffered is not the same as non buffered non registered ram.
