Thanks Schoondoggy, I didnt think what they were suggesting sounded correct!

 

Fairly sure these should be OK, can you confirm please?

Thanks a lot 

 

Did you purchase this RAM if so did it work?  I'm looking to upgrade my G8 to 16GB and these seem to be quite a good price, but I've seen some conflicting information that these didn't work for someone else.

Hi guys im in Australia, I currently have 2gb of Ram in my Gen8 and windows is chewing all 2gb 😅 (Part number # 669237-071 HP 2GB 1X2GB 1600MHZ PC3-12800 CL11 ECC UNBUFFERED)
i am wanting to add a second stick maybe 4 or 8gb. Just running windows with plex etc on it. 
Can any one recommend somewhere in Australia i can order a stick from and what stick i should get, Want to get out of this as cheap as possible.
what part numbers to keep a eye out that are generally cheaper.

Cheers in advance.

I found this site lists Hynix and Samsung Memory that is compatible with the Gen 8 Microserver:

https://memory.net/product-category/hp/proliant/microserver-gen8/

 

I found some HMT41GU7BFR8A‐PB (2x8GB) locally on ebay and have ordered that.

How much do you want to spend?  Ebay seems to be cheapest (from China). Single Sticks of 8GB seem to be around £25 as per the link Symbiosis posted https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hynix-8GB-PC3L-12800E-DDR3-1600Mhz-1-35V-240Pin-ECC-Unbuffered-Memory-Ram/312871249642

This seems like the cheapest option, was feeling lucky to find someone in Australia selling some memory for a reasonable price but not having much luck. $50-$100 is around my budget, this stick defiantly comes within that for
$55
Was looking to avoid buying from china the Postage times take forever.

Hey all,

 

I believe the only shot at 32GB RAM on the Gen8 Micro server would be with this set

 

Part - MT18KDF2G72AZ-1G6A1

  • DDR3
  • 16GB per stick x2
  • ECC support
  • Unbuffered (Unregistered)
  • Dual Rank - (Most important for addresing 32Gb in only two slots)

It seems to fit all the tick boxes, but is too expensive to do a quick test.

 

Datasheet

Hi @radaxian, pretty sure there are those that have tried many types of RAM to get to 32Gb, it’s just not going to happen unless someone edits the BIOS or something else unsupported..
