Poweredge T310 Memory Upgrade

Hey.

I purchased an old T310 for basic home server uses and decided to upgrade the memory from 4GB to 16GB. I have the Xeon X3430 CPU, and currently have this RAM installed (The two without the heatspreader) but then I purchased this RAM to replace the current memory but when I installed them in the correct slots (1&2 and 3&4 I think?) or any of the slots, the system did not post.

Do I have the wrong memory here or is it DOA?

Any advice would be great.

Thanks,

David.

The RAM in question uses x4 memory chip or DRAM which is not supported on this server and when used, the server will not POST. Additionally,  x16 DRAMs on RDIMM and  x4 DRAM on UDIMM and Quad rank UDIMM are not supported. Consider purchasing supported memory such as P/N C1KCN for 4 GB 2Rx8 module.
