I have an HP Proliant BL480c G1, capable of 48GB of RAM.  Right now I have 8GB in it (2GB DIMMs in the 1/4 & 7/10 FBDIMM slots).  I would like to add RAM, but only have 1GB pairs left.  I am thinking of putting 1GB DIMMs in slots 2/5, 8/11, 3/6, & 9/12 - that would total 16GB.  I'm wondering if there would be any memory management problems with configuring the memory this way.  It will be running Windows 2003 Enterprise server.  I can see nothing in the documentation addressing my specific question, but would like to see what the Experts Exchange folks say.  

Thanks for your time,
