RAM - 8GB + 2gb - Will it work?


Recommended Posts


Very new to servers. I purchased 8gb (one stick) of ram for my gen8 microserver. 

Is it possible to add the 2gb ram that came with the server for a total of 10GB of ram?

It will work but be in single channel mode. For best performance ram should be installed in matching sets

I'm curious what the impact of single channel mode would be. From what I've read, it isn't noticeable in real-world usage. Is there more to this?


I'd imagine many of us who upgrade from the standard 2gb (G1610T owners) would ask this question of 4+2 or 8+2. If it's not detrimental, then maybe we go with unmatched sets.


Is the theoretical perfect much different to the real-world achieveable?
