Populating DIMMs for Optimal System Performance

Optimal performance is achieved by populating the DIMMs so that the memory is symmetrical, or balanced. Symmetry is achieved by adhering to the following guidelines:

  • In single-processor systems, populate DIMMs of the same size in multiples of four.

  • In dual-processor systems, populate DIMMs of the same size in multiples of eight.

  • Populate the DIMM sockets in the order described in the following sections.

The following sections provide an example of how to populate the DIMM sockets to achieve optimal system performance.
