I've ordered DELL PowerEdge™ T110 II with 2GB RAM and
Corsair 16GB 1600MHz CL10 DDR3 Vengeance Memory Kit(2 X 8GB). By some reason the server works only with the original memory and won't accept the Corsair's one. Just before returning the memory could anyone advice on:
a. Any tips for installing RAM (I've four slots - white black white black, my initial attempt was to use slots 1 & 3 or 2 & 4 - neither worked, then a single chip which didn't work neither). while failing 2 uses slots give red on signal indicator (the one with the curve) with 3 & 4 lights on, while 1 & 3 gives blue indicator with the same lights on.
b. Are there any general suitability rules I've got missed? - i.e. what could make a memory kit unsuitable for a server?
