R710 Memory Upgrade possibility with mixing 4GB and 16GB modules

Hello,

We have a R710 server with 12 x 4GB memory modules.

The actual configuration is: 48GB Memory (12x4GB), 1066MHz, Dual Ranked RDIMMs for 2 Processors

We would like to upgrade the memory of the server using 16GB modules.

What are the supported configurations?

Is it possible to complete all the available slot using 6 x 16GB DIMMs? What is the Dell part number recommended?

Thanks for your help,

Arnaud

Arnaud,

To max out the server with the dimms you specified you would need to install the 16gb dimms on A1, A2, and A3 as well as B1, B2, and B3. All the remaining dimms would be 4gb dimms. That will need to be set to Optimizer mode in the BIOS.

Basically the memory must match across all the channels.

16gb dimm part number is 317-6142.

Let me know if this helps.
