8GB DIMM in EX490

Recommended Posts

albal

Hi,

 

Has anyone got an EX490 or EX495 working with 8GB of RAM?

 

By the way I'm not asking for opinions :-) Please only answer if you've tried it and it worked or it didn't.

 

In case you are wondering its for ESX.

 

 

Thanks,

Al

Is the hardware ESXi compatible?

Yes, not on the HCL but it can be done. With the correct CPU they run hyper-v, VMware or any other virtualisation platform.

EX490/495 only have one DIMM.

Have you found a source for a 8GB DDR2-800 PC2-6400 module?

As I can tell, no memory manufacturer ever made a  8GB DDR2-800 PC2-6400 module.

 

Good luck in your search.

So where did DDR2 800 come from?  :rolleyes:  

 

DDR2 667 (PC2-5300) is ample enough even on a Q9550S  Plenty of that kicking around:

Every tear down I have seen shows ddr2-800 is what came from the factory, so I am just trying to match that.

The link you provided is for Fully Buffered Registered ECC server memory that will not work in a EX490/495.

If you search ebay for 8GB ddr2-667 memory, it comes back with kits(2x4GB), not a individual 8GB module.

I cant say for certain, but I am not finding any 8GB modules, DDR2-800 or 667.
