RE: Precision T3500 Ram

This chart suggests that 8, 10 and 16 GB configurations aren't possible but surely I could mix DR 2GB with 4 GB as well. would such configurations not work?

@ SpeedFan

Are you sure Dell Precision T3500 can use PC3-12800 DDR3-1600 RAM? As far as i could find, it can only support  PC3-10600 DDR3-1333 only.

Can you tell more on this please if you have any info?

There are 6 slots and 24 Gigs is max.   6 Pieces of 4 Gig Ram is max.

You cannot mix ranks and density.

RE: Precision T3500 Ram

My Dell T3500 works with 8gb sticks with no issues.

Currently have Xeon 3565 and 8GB x 3 = 24Gb of none-ECC memory with the latest currently available BIOS.

I haven't tried installing more memory because as far as I know CPU I have doesn't support more that totally 24Gb of memory.

Will try to install more memory after upgrading CPU to Xeon 5600 family.

DDR3-1600 will downclock to DDR3-1333 per the programmed SPD settings most of the time. Crucial just lists them as compatible, not saying that they will run at 1600. I currently have a set of 6x4GB 1333mhz chips running at that speed in my T3500, but if I look at CPU-Z, I can see SPD settings for slower busses and timings.
