Based on your current configuration and available 2x16-GB MEM DIMMs, you can not obtain optimal memory configuration at 64-GB because the memory population guidelines require each memory channel to be balanced; hence memory modules in A1A4, A2A5, A3A6 & B1B4, B2B5, B3B6 have to be balanced.

In order to upgrade your memory to 64-GB, you may purchase 4 more 8-GB modules to install in A2A5 & B2B5 or just 2 more 16-GB modules such that you install in A1A4 &B1B4. However, using the 16-GB modules will give you more flexibility for future memory expansion.

Let me know whether you have any further questions.
