I have a PowerEdge 2900 iii with SBS 2008 and i just bought some Crucial ram (2 sticks of 4GB memory). My server is running with only 4GB of ram and i noticed that 90% is in use (my guess is this is from using exchange server also).
I currently have 4 sticks of 1GB memory in the server, and 8 open slots.
I wanted to know if there was any certain order i should put the ram in (should i move the 1GB down and put the new larger sticks in it place)? Also, is there any downside of using 2 sticks of 4GB with 4 sticks of 1GB ram?
