Z840 use all 2Rx4 memory?

HP Recommended
z840
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Will a z840 utilize modules like a 16GB 2Rx4 PC4-2133P-RB1-11 Registered ECC Memory DDR4. So far I have seen only 1Rx4 mentioned but have seen the 2R4 listed as compatible at some sites. If there were 1R4 chips originally I surmise I must remove if I use any 2Rx4?

the z840 has multiple ram banks (4 if dual cpu) 2 if single cpu, each bank can use different rank memory, however you can not mix different rank dimms in a bank dual rank ram is preferred as it's slightly faster

 

in lower capacity dimm sizes single and dual rank modules are available ,.....in higher capacity only dual rank and the largest sizes are quad rank

 

please refer to the hp z840 documentation on ram which is posted on the hp site under the z840 section
