In other words, does this CPU is NUMA compliant w/ separated RAM channels for each CPU, or can i just add RAM however i want?

The server is an Intel server (basically brand less).

If there is a separate memory bank for each CPU socket, then both sockets will need memory as they cannot share. This will have more to do with your motherboard than the CPUs themselves.

Thx. So the CPU architecture isn't that important?

Intel 5400 series has memory attached to a memory controller hub rather than directly attached to each CPU's internal memory controller. See block diagram in http://ark.intel.com/system.aspx?groupID=33080&configID=27617&chipsetID=27070 for example. (The CPU architecture is what matters since that defines what chipsets support it, it's not until you get to the 5500/5600 CPUs that NUMA nodes become relevant).
