RAM - Has anyone tried using a 2x8 kit with the N40L

The specs call for a MAX of 8 gigs. The board may accept it but the BIOS will probably not see it. IMO, the risk is not worth it.

Isn't the server OS limited to 8 GB itself?

I've ordered the server (2 actually) to setup an ESXi home lab for VCP 5 study. Was hoping there might be a way around the 8 GB limit in the BIOS. If I had a Mac, I'd order it to test and then drop it in the Mac :) but I'm a solid Win7/2008R2 kinda guy. Like my $ more than my style.

By no means is the Server OS (R2) limited to 8 gigs unless you are running Foundation, then yes. Standard can hold up to 32 gigs which mine has and Enterprise up to 2TB or RAM. R2 is x64 only

I was thinking specifically of WHS. It doesn't have an 8GB limit either?

I think WHS is 32 just like Server 2008R2. The most I have ever run is 8 as anything above that was a waste. I can tell you that I pull as many as four simultaneous downloads from one of the WHS boxes I have in order to seed files to a new one.

Now in that case, it would help to have some more RAM if I were going to be doing this for more than the month I think this project will take,
