Finally getting around to configuring my Supermicro storage server. I have been testing out different NAS software solutions going from FlexRAID to UnRAID to FreeNAS. DDR2 ECC memory has come down in price so I picked up 64Gb in 4Gb modules. I already had one four DIMM set but got the other three (48Gb) for $120 on eBay.
Problem is the board slows the memory down and I get a lot of ECC errors if I populate all slots. It's fine with all but four slots filled. I can't say for sure if there is a bad DIMM but this does not seem to be the case. I am running memtest on the new DIMM's one set at a time until I sort it out.
Anyone else fill all memory slots and have no issues?
