RAM Upgrade questions...Poweredge R610

Jump to solution

currently, we have 6X4GB sticks of RAM for a total of 24GB. 

I would like to upgrade, and I found 3x16GB RAM for a decent price and a total of 48GB. 

Can I install 3 16GB sticks in sockets 1, 3, and 5 leaving sockets 2,4, and 6 blank?

Hello dallasdunaway

That shouldn't work, but populating them in 1,2,3 should work. If the memory is the same type(UDIMM/RDIMM) then you should also be able to put the 4GB DIMMs in 4,5,6.

Thanks

Would leaving 4,5 and 6 empty have any ill effect?

No, I was just letting you know you could use them in case you weren't aware.

I looked at the diagram wrong. I meant 1,2 and 3. Thanks.

Would leaving 4,5 and 6 empty have any ill effect? I'm probably using those in a different box.
