The server comes with a minimum of one 2 GB DIMM installed in slot 3. When you
install additional DIMMs, install them in the order shown in the following table to
optimize system performance. In non-mirroring mode, all three channels on the
memory interface for each microprocessor can be populated in any order and have
no matching requirements.When you install additional DIMMs, install them in the
order shown in Table 8 on page 107, to maintain performance.
Important: If you have configured the server to use memory mirroring, do not use
the order in Table 8 on page 107; go to "Memory mirroring" on page 107 and use
the installation order shown there.

16 GB. The server supports a minimum of 2 GB and a maximum of 192 GB of
system memory using RDIMMs.
For 32-bit operating systems only: Some memory is reserved for various
system resources and is unavailable to the operating system. The amount of
memory that is reserved for system resources depends on the operating system,
the configuration of the server, and the configured PCI devices.
server supports a minimum of 2 GB and a maximum of 48 GB of system memory
Note: The amount of usable memory is reduced depending on the system
configuration. A certain amount of memory must be reserved for system
resources. To view the total amount of installed memory and the amount of
configured memory, run the Setup utility. For additional information, see
Chapter 3, "Configuring the server," on page 143.
example, you must install a minimum of two DIMMs if the server has two
microprocessors installed. However, to improve system performance, install a
minimum of three DIMMs for each microprocessor.
