Re: R710 Memory Upgrade possibility with 16GB module

I would propose to upgrade all R710 with (A5008568) -- 16GB 2Rx4 RDIMM ECC 1333MHz LV..........I certainly hope this will work well with my server having E5520 processors and would also work with existing (G484D) -MEMORY MODULE..4G, 1066, 2RX4X72

That should work with the 4GB DIMMs in 7/8. I edited a couple of my posts to clarify some limitations with the quad rank DIMMs, and the 1.35v CPU. I added two notes clarifying that the quad rank DIMMs will operate at 800 MHz when populated 2 per channel, and that the 1066 MHz speed limitation for the 1.35v CPU applies to dual rank or higher DIMMs when populated with a minimum of 2 per channel. In the context of our conversation I don't think it confused you, but I wanted to clarify the information for future readers.

Let us know if there are any issues with the upgrade.

Thanks
