Hello,

I have a Intel S520HC serverboard with 2 Xeon Processor e5620 and 8GB RAM Kingston KVR1333D3D8R9S/2GI (x 4).

The ram is 1333mhz but my system see it 1067mhz...Why? I need to update anything?

When i start the server i have 3 beet shorts, in the manual this is for a RAM ERROR, but i dont understand because all my 8GB was read by the system....

Another question is: you know if is possible to install Snow Leopard Apple on my server?

Thanx at all

GG

Xeon E5620 supports 800 and 1066MHz memory speed, so 1333Mhz DIMM will work at 1066MHz. 3 short beeps does not indicate memory error. It's normal during POST. If you have memory error you'll get 3 long beeps and no display. You can hear that by powering up the system with no DIMM populated.
