Good Evening. I was given a new motherboard (used) out of a working Z600 with dual Xeon CPU E5504 @2.00GHz
However I was not given any ram to go with the computer.
My question is, does the ram that I put in the three memory slots for the second CPU have to match exactly or can you different brans between the two sets of slots?
I have 3 4Gig stickst of ram in the first three slots for the first CPU and the computer works fine. The computer sees that I have two processors in the unit, but if I put three sticks of ram (same type as the first set but different brand) the comptuer just beeps at and has no video.
If I pull the three sticks of ram from the seond set of slots, the comptuer works find.
