I’m upgrading 4 Dell R310 servers from the Xeon L3406’s in them to Xeon L3426’s.
The systems all came with 2 (2x1GB) PC3L-10600E DIMMs. I looked on Intel’s website for RAM support for the Xeon L3426’s and it says ECC supported. So I purchased some RAM along with the CPU’s. However, I didn’t get E, I got R. Not thinking there’s going to be a issue (nothing noted on Intel’s website).
Installed the first CPU, and RAM…system starts, fans full tilt?! What?!
Change RAM from the R to the E…system boots just fine.
So are these Xeon L34X6’s CPU’s not compatible with R ECC DIMMs? only E ECC DIMMs?
