Dell PowerEdge T710 Memory Configuration with 1 Processor

Jump to solution

We have a Dell PowerEdge T710 server with only 1 processor and we are looking at installing 2 x 16GB of RAM.

The server is set to optimizer mode. With this configuration can we install only the 2 sticks of RAM or will we need to buy a third?

Blueboy84,

Yes, you can use 2 X 16GB Memory under the optimizer mode.  By populating memory banks A1 & A2 (recommended) on separate channels you achieve supported speed of up to 1333 MHz as opposed to speed of 1066MHz when you use A1 &A4 banks.

For future memory expansion I recommend you use the Single Rank DIMMs or Dual RankDIMMs as opposed to Quad Rank DIMMs. Quad Rank DIMMS use only two of the available banks in the channel.
