    do you know if you can 2GB with 8GB in the same blade? i have been told that you can have 4GB and 8GB dimms, or 2GB and 4GB dimms, and that 8GB and 2GB dimm will not work, but i cannot find any supproting documents supporting this.

    does anybody know the answer to this?

    Accepted Solution

    M600 Supports up to 64 Gig
    Memory Modules must be installed in identical pairs
    All Modules in the blade must be identical in speed and technology

    There is nothing that says that you can't or can do
    8,8,2,2 / 8,8,2,2

    Popluate the Dimms and find out
