    it's quad rank ram, 33 bucks a dimm. the main benefit is it's 1333 and not 1066 or 800. not really sure it's a super great deal.

    Man I actually ran out to my car for this one because eBay doesn't work @ work.

    Hong Kong + 1 month shipping time makes it meh for me...

    I just ordered a kit for testing, should it go I'll use it for my S2600CP (hope it will run until the memory arrives...) otherwise the memory goes in the two other server to replace the 16GB desktop ram...

    Would this work on 2011 systems?

    DRAM prices fluctuate, but I've been able to find these at around $25/16GB from US sellers in used working condition. Usually hynix though, not Samsung. So I think there are better deals. Quad rank also means if you fill a system with these, likely to down clock to 800mhz; be sure to check your boards manual.

    It should work. I think sum of ranks / channel <=8, so you can only populate 2 / channel. If you have 3 slots per channel you can't use the 3rd slot. So DIMM A1, A2, A3-empty; B1, B2, B3-empty; ...
    Supermicro has a PDF doc Memory configuration s for X9 MBs on their site.
    You should also be able to mix modules with different ranks 1,2,4
    Mixing of speeds & voltages is not recommended mixed speeds - all the modules run at slowest speed
    Mixed Voltage - higher voltage (pc3L runs at pc3)

    Decent price. The seller would probably take off 10% for fee's, another 3% if bank transfer and a 7% extra for bulk would put you at a 20% additional discount; if you are willing to take those risks.
