8GB DIMM in EX490


Recommended Posts



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.

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

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.
