Unbuffered DIMMs (UDIMMs)

The following tips provide information that you must consider when you install UDIMMs.
  • The memory channels run at the lowest common frequency of the DIMMs installed.
  • The UDIMM options that are available for the server are 4 GB, 8 GB, and 16 GB DIMMs.
  • The server supports up to two single-rank or dual-rank UDIMMs per channel.
  • It is recommended to install DIMMs with the same rank in each channel.

  • The following table lists the supported UDIMM population.
    Table 1. Supported UDIMM population per channel.

    Five-column table for documenting the DIMM slots per channel, DIMMs installed in each channel, DIMM type, DIMM speed, and ranks per DIMM (any combination).
