xw8400
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Are there special requirements for installing DIMMs in single-processor versions of the xw8400 series of workstations? It seems to me that I read something on this topic or was advised about it sometime in the last few weeks.

 

Unfortunately, search as I may, I cannot locate any references to special considerations for adding DIMMs to workstations with just one processor. What am I missing, if anything?

I read all of this information several times over the last week or two. I am now quite familiar with those specifications.  Unfortunately, I am still looking for the advisory information that I am quite certain I read elsewhere regarding deviations from these recommendations for single-processor versions of the workstation.

 

The impression I got was that a single-processor xw8400 may not be able to take advantage of all of the "standard" DIMM installation schemes usually described in the document quoted above.

 

All I'm asking is this:  Are there special DIMM installation instructions  for optimizing memory usage in single-processor xw8400 PCs, or not? If so, what are they?
