Gen8 G1610T quick RAM compatibility question

Hey peeps! 

 

New user here, just bought my G1610T and checked out the thread here: http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/5639-proliant-microserver-gen8-links/ 

Some really great stuff here, I plan to eventually upgrade to the Xeon and 8>16GB of RAM.

 

My question is (that I cant seem to find a direct answer to) is... Would THIS RAM work with my G1610T. 

Also a side (perhaps silly) question. Could I buy 8gb of it and then another 8gb down the line? I suspect this will be fine but its worth asking anyway.

 

 

Thanks in advance,

Alt.

They are 8GB unbuffered ECC memmory, so they should work.

You could run with one module, but it is best to run a matched pair.

Doing a Google search of HP Microserver and KVR1333D3E9SK2/16G brought up this:

 

He seems like a trustworthy fellow!

Duct tape and all.  When in doubt I always run the compatibily checker over at www.crucial.com

Ohh wow I am not sure how I managed to miss that! Thanks :).

 

 

Also I understand if I use the 8GB stick with the current 2GB stick that the server comes with it will be in single channel mode. Do you have any experience in real world speed (or loss of speed) from single to dual channel?

I don't, but I intend to do some testing.

I have not heard of anyone complaining about performance with mixed dimms, so I assume the performance hit is not awful.

Well thanks for your help, I will keep an eye out for your testing.

you get dual channel on the first 4gb then single channel on the rest

 

e.g.

 

2gb stick + 2gb from 8gb stick will run in duel channel mode

 

its called intel flex memory

The only thing with that graph is the proportions need to be reversed, so that the smaller segment is dual channel and the larger is non-interleaved, but yeah....
