          Aomega, I' m moving your thread to the server’s community in order to get assistance on your Server Board.

            I am concerned the memory usability difference is only seen inside the Operating System.  To better diagnose this, would you, please, confirm the following?:


            1. What is the exact board model inside your Intel® Server Chassis SC5650DP?


            2. What is the BIOS/firmware ver. running on the board?


            3. What is the manufacturer and part number of the memory modules?


            4. Is your system experiencing a performance scenario?  If so, please, provide the following:

            4.1. Please, elaborate more on the performance situation.

            4.2. What troubleshooting have you performed so far?


            5. Is the Operating System running with the latest updates/patches?
