DL120 G6 - Six 2GB Registered DIMMs?

Does the DL120 G6 support quantity six (6) of  2GB Dual Rank PC3-10600 Registered DIMMs (500656-B21) ?   The HP Power Advisor says no, the DL120 G6 quickspecs say yes, and the tie-breaker vote (DDR3 Memory Configuration Tool) abstains.

 

HP Power Advisor (Revision 2.1, Date 11.04.2011) : Gives "Maximum Limit Reach for Ranks" message if you attempt to configure more than four Dual Rank DIMMs.  (It also gives that message if you attempt to configure more than two Quad Rank DIMMs; so it seemly contains a rule limiting memory to a max of eight ranks.)

 

DDR3 Memory Configuration Tool only lists UDIMM configurations for capacities above 4GB, adding a warning that RDIMMs are only supported when using Xeon processors.

Hi,

 

Interesting post, even I went through the Power Advisor Online Tool.

According to the documentation, it says this DIMM is supported.

I would suggest contact HP Presales before buying the DIMMs.

Re: DL120 G6 - Six 2GB Registered DIMMs?

I also have the same issue, have tried both the approved HP UDIMMs and RDIMMS but I can not populate the lowest memory slots with any approved memory that works. I have 2 DL120 G6, and many sticks, so I went through all of them. I can boot with 4x2gb UDIMM at 1333, or 4x4gb RDIMM @1066. The HP online memory configurator says it will support more too, 12 UDIMM and 24G RDIMM! which is wrong. I am using the latest bios, all the memory is official HP from either Hynix or Micron and I am able to populate with all identical sticks.
