    S3420 RDIMM compatibility? confused!

    jmusic_man

      Hello all,

       

      I have an S3420GP motherboard coming to me with a Xeon 3400-series processor.  I admit, I'm having trouble sourcing the RIGHT RAM.

       

      An eBay dealer told me that Samsung M393B5170EH1-CH9Q4 (DDR3 1333Mhz 4GB per stick) would work... but I see that this ram is rated as 2Rx4.

       

      Looking at the clip below from the technical manual, am I reading this correctly? Is the board incompatible with anything that has x4 in the specs? Do I need to look for 2Rx8 modules?

       

      Thanks for your assistance!

       

      James
