I have a S5520HC system with dual E5520 Xeons and I want to upgrade the memory to 64GB.

 

I have 8x 8GB RAM sticks, will they work in that configuration?

I see that your motherboard supports up to 192GB and the CPU supports up to 144GB.

So, 64GB should work fine without any problems.

Hello,

To answer your question, should be no problem at all but we strongly recommend if possible, to avoid compatibility issues; getting validated memory from the following list:
