Hello,

I am looking for the followings:

6 or 12 sticks of Samsung PC3-12800 DDR3 16GB ECC/REG M393B2G70DB0-YK0 memory (I hope all of them have the same manufacture weeks)
2 of Intel Xeon X5690 processors

I am buying these to upgrade my workstation. Items must be functionally and cosmetically in perfect condition.
I have a U.S. address in California. Please let me know if you have them for sale. Thanks!

I am looking for 6 to 16 sticks of Samsung PC3-12800 M393B2G70QH0-YK0 (DDR3 16GB ECC/REG) memory. They should have the same manufacture dates. I am still looking for 2 of X5690 processors, too.

I mean no offense, but I might be able to help you widen net on finding suitable memory. You might want to check your motherboard manual for memory speeds, assuming X5690s you are looking for, to go with memory you are looking for. I could be wrong, but my supermicro X8 motherboard, and X5600 CPUs can only go up to DDR3-1333 / PC3-10600, and usually not that high if fully populated with dimms. ...on other hand, DDR3-1600 will help future proof for used X9 motherboards, and E5 V1/V2 CPUs in near future :)

Actually, you are right. The X8 motherboard officially supports only up to DDR3-1333. Supermicro has the DDR3-1600 memory on their tested memory list though. And again you are right! The DDR3-1600 memory is compatible with some X9 motherboards. Thank you very much for your advice!

16 x 60 = $960USD for 256GB of ram seems pretty darn good.
The 16 x 8GB is about $500 so price scaling works quite well.
I find 16GB modules are still quite expensive especially when compared to 8GB modules. If they were like $40 or below, I would think the price is pretty good.
