S3420GPLX with 32GB RAM configured

Hi,

We have 2 servers with S3420GPLX motherboards (3 of 2 banks). I can't find this motherboard model in your memory configuration tool.

According to this document http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/motherboards/server/s3420gp/sb/s3420gp_user... we should be able to upgrade our 2 servers with up to 32GB RAM each.

Sadly for us, Intel documentations is quite poor/old so there is no 8GB memory stick listed in their tested hardware document http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s3420gp/sb/serverboards3420gplx.pdf

So even when 32GB should be supported, there is no Intel documentation that tells with which modules you can reach that 32GB (3 x 2 banks).

I see other posts asking this question but no memory module is finally recommended. Most close to an answer, is a link to kingstone configurator for discontinued memories. Any help in what memory to buy?

Thank you very much

Seb

Please refer to page 23 of http:// http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/motherboards/server/s3420gp/sb/s3420gp_tps_... Technical Product Specification for Intel® Server Board S3420GP Family.

Hello pup_seba,

Checking on previous Intel® Communities I found the memory that other users have used on this server in order to get the maximum of 32 GB of RAM to work. Please refer to /thread/21622 S3420GP and RAM

According to Technical Product Specification(TPS), the Memory specifications for achieving the maximum Memory of 32GB on this board should be listed as follows:

However, on the Quad Rank RDIMMs section, there is a correction to be made under 2Gb DRAM Technology column which is 32GB (8x 8GB RDIMMs).

Other customers have tested 4 x 8GB modules of Kingston PC3-8500 1066MHZ and they worked successfully. You could refer to/thread/21622 S3420GP and RAM

This is the memory they tested: http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B002O3FLZU/ref%3Doh_details_o03_s00_i00 http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B002O3FLZU/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00 and reported to be working fine.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards,

Caesar B.
