I purchased 12 sticks of RAM on eBay to go into a Dell R610 server. The RAM is ECC REG PC3-12800 DDR3-1600 yet when I occupy all 12 slots with this ram I get the following error on boot:
MEMORY Initialization Warning: Memory Size May be Reduced MEMBIST failure – The following DIMM has been disabled by Bios: DIMM B2 MEMBIST failure – The following DIMM has been disabled by Bios: DIMM B5
I am using all of the latest versions, BIOS, etc. I am using 2 x x5660 processors.
What is causing this issue and is it correctable?
If this RAM is incorrect what is correct to maximize the RAM on this server?
