Memory Upgrade for R810 (4CPU- E7520)

Hi,

I have a R810 running on 4CPU- E7520 with 16x 2GB RAM.

I want to upgrade to 64GB and i am not reusing the 2GB RAM.

My vendor provided me with 4x 16GB RAM which after installation, displayed "no configurable memory detected". I suspect that the memory configuration is not supported.

I need help to confirm if the following memory configuration works.

  • 4x 16GB (A1, B1, C1, D1)
  • 8x 8GB (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2, D1, D2)

Thanks!

Rudolf

Rudolf_Ang,

This looks to be an numbers issue. Meaning there aren't enough dimms being used, specifically for the amount of processors installed. With 4 processors installed, the bare minimum in dimms is a count of 16. So you would need to increase the number of dimms. Also to get 64Gb you would need to use either 32 2GB dimms, or 16 4GB dimms.

Let me know if this helps clarify the issue.
