For ECC memory make sure to check SEL (system event log in BIOS or BMC) after the test.

This memory would not work on my Supermicro X9SRL-F. They are working fine in Supermicro X9DR3-LN4F+-B.

On the Supermicro X9SRL-F, I got the no-boot, no-video, no-beep code symptom. Basically, the board doesn't pass the pre-check.

This board is working fine currently with 16gb sticks. I want to update to 32gb stick w/o any luck.

Is it the BIOS thing? Does anyone have this memory working on the Supermicro X9SRL-F board?

The X9SRL-F does indeed support PC3-14900 LRDIMMs. I believe you should get 6 beeps if the ram is not compatible.

I have already installed mine in production boxes, or I would try it out in my X9SRL-F for you.

I am running in a X9SRL-F with no problems.
Can you get me your BIOS version? Mine definitely doesn't work. even IPMI won't work correctly with the memory installed (all sensor shows N/A in IPMI, no display etc).

Thanks

I'm running the latest I think. Firmware 3.19 with IPMI 2.0.

Keep in mind the X9SRL-F does not support LR-DIMMs with E5-1600 CPUs. You need 2600 series of CPUs. It'll support 14900 regular DIMMs with 1600 CPUs.

Man the talk of ram drives made me think back to this old setup, Been sitting in a parts pile for atleast 5 years, blew my mind that the battery had a charge when I plugged it in. Pitty this tech didn't advance more, imagine this as NVMe / pci-e connected. Basically4Nhc4hhwTkmZkWRrMRr2GA.jpg JJM5-vJLQ7yzpTOMubCs0Q.jpg has a CF drive and battery to backup memory for longer power downs.

Dude...you are Insane!

What do you need with a half a TB of ram bro?

I have 16 x 16GB sticks myself. That's 256GB of ram. I couldn't possibly forsee anyone needing that much for home or lab use :eek:

Talk to me brother, what would you use that much ram for? Eh? Ehhhhhhh?

One word--Ramdrive. :D
to calculate pi using y-cruncher. ;). 256gb ram you can only calculate up to 50 billion digits using only ram. did it in less than 1.7hr on the dual 2696v2. with 512GB ram i can calculate 100billion digits of pi (in probably about 4hr or less ;)
