Hi!

I am concerned the memory usability difference is only seen inside the Operating System. To better diagnose this, would you, please, confirm the following?:

1. What is the exact board model inside your Intel® Server Chassis http://ark.intel.com/products/36602/Intel-Server-Chassis-SC5650DP?q=SC5650DP# @compatibility SC5650DP?

2. What is the BIOS/firmware ver. running on the board?

3. What is the manufacturer and part number of the memory modules?

4. Is your system experiencing a performance scenario? If so, please, provide the following:

4.1. Please, elaborate more on the performance situation.

4.2. What troubleshooting have you performed so far?

5. Is the Operating System running with the latest updates/patches?
