CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory $99.99

Pretty nice price for 1600 RAM, specially if it will work in an N54L and/or N40L, although the N54L seems more tolerant.

It would not be a good choice for any of the MicroServers.

From the N54L spec sheets;

 

Memory Type PC3-10600E unbuffered DDR3 ECC operating at 800MHz
Standard 1 GB (1x1GB)
2GB (1x2GB)
4GB (1x4GB)
Maximum 8 GB
 
It is a good fit for the ASUS board I listed in deals earlier.

Several posts recently about the 54L models holding steady with 16GB.  Not the hit or miss as with the 40L series.

When it comes to memory, I stick with the vendor approved or recommended choices, but that is just me.

Does RAM with tall heat spreaders like that work in those Kleenex boxes?

No, they do not.  That's a simple fix however.

I know it's not ECC, but a number of people have reported success with non-ECC RAM in MicroServers, so I thought 'maybe'. The 800 MHZ should be no issue since the Corsair can handle twice that clock rate.

Good point Schoondoggy. I could not find it listed as recommended RAM known to work in the MicroServer so I don't think it would be worth the risk.  It would be much safer (and cheaper in the long run) to First check out the Wiki or links to what other people are successfully using in the RAM section of MicroServer Hardware Links  -- Just my opinion anyways.
