It gets a bit frustrating trying to figure out the memory configurations that are possible on a server so I would really appreciate some input here. Please do not send me a link. I have looked at all of them and it just drives me nuts :-)
Here is what I have. Dell T610 with dual CPU's. all 12 slots of memory are filled with 4 gigs in each one. I would like to replace them with 8 gig chips but the upfront cost of replacing all 12 is out of my personal budget right now. I am using the memory configuration that allows me to access all 12 of the chips (the others are memory mirroring and something else that only looks at a few of them and I guess parity's the rest).
So, is it possible with the configuration I have to replace 1/2 of the chips or some other combination that will allow me to have more memory but not cost me an arm and a leg?
