Hi,

 

What speed memory Dimms will a NL40 take? 

 

I had modded the bios to support 16GB so will be popping 2 8GB's in there..

 

Thanks

First post has a section on RAM http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/5190-microserver-hardware-links/.  There are a number of links that should point you in the right direction.

 

There is also a discussion in this thread on using 16GB RAM in the Microservers http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/4603-16-gb-ram-for-n36l-vs-n40l/

 

On the Home Server Show blog there are a number of posts by John Stutsman (Joe_Miner) about his Microservers.  He discusses which RAM he has tested in his boxes and issues he has encountered.

Agreed. I really, really strongly suggest you stick with RAM that others have tried and proven works. The N40Ls seem to be somewhat picky about RAM and I wouldn't want you to get stuck with some non-working DIMMs.

Reading the specs in your link above it definitely says 2 x 4GB. 8GB works perfectly fine with WHS2011...and you may find out that 16GB isn't reliable in your box.
