    Hi All -

    I've had the unlucky experience of trying to find compatible RAM to load up my Intel 3420 GPLX Motherboard w/ Xeon 3450 CPU. Basically I need help with finding compatible RAM to load up 24 GB.

    Here are the compatible configurations for for this board:
    http://imct.intel.com/listmemconfigs.aspx?pid=X3450&bid=S3420GP

    Here is the configuration I want:
    http://imct.intel.com/cfgview.aspx?id=542771

    I know i need 4GB RDIMM 1066 Dual Rank DIMMS using a chip configuration of 256x8. Can somebody point me to the right ram manufacturer/model?

    I've just gone through attempting to buy some 'advertised' compatible RAM off ebay only to have run into a horror story of compatibility issues that have resulted in 3 returns.

    Thanks,

    J

    Lookig at Lynfield CPU PDF I have:

    To get to
    24GB = 6x 4GB RDIMMS dual ranked ECC
    32GB = 4x 8GB RDIMMS Quad ranked ECC

    Just found the PDF it's over here

    Now you need to find the RAM applies.
    I'm running 4x 4GB UDIMMS on my Xeon X3470, I'm not too worried about ECC.

    Upon further review it appears that this RAM is probably what i'm looking for:

    Samsung - M393B5273BH1-CF8

    This is based on the Intel Server Configuration Tool found here:

    http://serverconfigurator2.intel.com/configure-memory.aspx?id=MzQwMSMxLDMzOTgjMSwzNDI5IzE=

    Seems like the Samsung is some of the only 4GB RDIMMS that are dual ranked, which i'll need to load this up to 24GB.

    Looks like i can find this memory for a reasonable price here:
