I'm trying to identify compatible memory so I can upgrade my server.

I'm running an Intel S2600CP with 32GB RAM. The memory currently in it is 8GB 2RX8 DDR3 PC3L-12800E. I'm having a tough time finding compatible memory that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. While the identical memory would be great, it's pretty expensive. Are there alternative brands or types? If so, can I mix/match? From what I understand, my memory is ECC and I can use Registered (12800R). I've looked at my S2600CP manual (https://www.manualslib.com/manual/564007/Intel-S2600cp-Family.html?page=50#manual) and, unfortunately, I'm still confused. Below are pictures of my currently installed RAM

 

eBay has a plethora of memory and this 'appears' to be compatible, but this is 2Rx4 https://www.ebay.com/itm/MINT-16GB-Samsung-M393B2G70DB0-YK0-PC3L-12800R-DDR3L-1600-2RX4-Server-Memor...

 

edit - I'm running dual E5-2680v2's if that makes any difference

Hello golfatx, Thank you for joining the community. In order to find all the possible compatible options for this server board the best option is to check the https://serverconfigurator.intel.com/ online tool. Go to the URL, select THOL builder > option 3 and choose the desired board from the dropdown menu and "memory" from the Compatible Options menu. Hope this helps Jose A.
