Memory for Microserver Gen8

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..

Intel set the limitation at 8GB per DIMM slot. Other servers with same CPU and chipsets can support 32GB, but only because they have four DIMM slots.

Hello, I have a Microserver gen 8 from the factory with Celeron and 4Gb that I want to expand and I have found a Xeon E3-1260L on ebay at a very good price and I would also like to expand it to 16Gb. Would these memories be compatible?

The link to the processor I have found is this:

Thanks to having found this forum I have decided to take the step forward.
Excuse my English, I use Google Translate ...
Thank you very much for your help.

The memory looks like it should work.

hi all!


As a "general rule", faster memory (on same technology) will work on slower bus...


But, since servers are usually "temperamental" :), have any of you tried a DDR3 1866Mhz UDIMM memory on a Microserver Gen8?

Yes, i know it will probably run on 1600/1333Mhz speed. But I've found some 1866 sticks with a good price.

I did in post 61

I have ordered from mr memory 2 pieces of 8GB (from here: https://www.mrmemory.co.uk/memory-ram-upgrades/hp/proliant/microserver-gen8-g1610t) to replace my 4GB hp 821223-081, but I can't get the server past the POST then. It works properly with the original HP RAM. Does anyone know if there is a problem with the RAM that comes from Mr Memory?

I'm using a Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1265L V2 @ 2.50GHz if that has any connection to the problem.

 

I attached a picture of the original and the two new ones if someone can spot a difference or the problem.

Can you post a picture of the other side of the modules? Did you change the CPU at the same time you changed the memory? Have you tried using the 4GB and one of the 8GB modules at the same time?

Hi!,

 

Anyone has tried with hynix HMT351U7BFR8C seems that will be an option PC3-12800E Unbuffered ?
