RE: Dell 510 MIX memory configuration
1. the second group of banks will only work when second cpu installed ?
The B lane cannot be used if you don't have a second CPU.
2. is the black slot only relevant when 2 cpu used ?
You can only use slots A1-A4 with a single CPU.
3. what is my best option to max RAM ?
All of the memory in slots 1-3 should be identical. You can install a different module in slot 4.
