It is reporting on this server via Dell Management software that DIMM 15 is bad, Since this is dual channel memory slots, would it be ok to remove the bad memory stick in slot 15 and also slot 16  Is it bad idea to have 3 CPU's with all memory populated and other CPU with banks half full.   Really  no need to have so much memory in first place.  

Where would DIMM 15 and DIMM16 be on the board ?

Hmm... in the hardware manual for that server, page 59 -- if you have four CPUs and you're going to remove memory from slot 15... you'll need to remove it from 3, 4, 7, 8, 11, 12, 15, and 16.  It's a NUMA capable system system, so:

Yes, bad idea.

The memory is directly on the system board, in the back... on the right as you're looking at the back of the server.  There should be a baffle which directs cooling air over the memory.  (If you remove the top cover, there may be a component diagram on the back of the cover.  The individual slots should all be clearly marked.)

Thanks . 16GB would be sufficient for our needs.
