Quite common in servers.

Though why aren't there FB variants? Are they planned?

In two year's from now I will have 2x4GB In my rig! :D:D:D
Whith 2TB SSD :D
And 8Core CPU
Oh yeah the world is rolling!

boils down to memory controllers supporting it (this module density). Nice module though.

Almost looks like photoshopped :D But nicely squeezed 4x2GB sticks in to one :)

I dont think they will, you just need airflow..just like anything else. but we will see.

Seems they're already available.

Doubt it, DDR2 is low powered, after all, while they won't exactly be overclocking them. And frankly, from the noise most servers emit rom the fans, I'd say that there will be enough fans to bring a little airflow over these.
They run at the standard 1.8v too, and CL5 means they're definately not going to be very stressed at 800MHz, so it should run cool.

Maybe when the new Intel chips come out with the integrated memory architecture stuff they've been working on -- I'd always heard that Athlons were better in server situations because of that, so it makes sense that a company making these would focus on AMD platforms for now.

Edit: I stand corrected (see above post).

question: how would these go with 1U racks?

They wouldn't.


I would say because of the small form factor of a 1U rack, the vast majority of servers would be in larger racks which could accommodate the module size.

why dualchannel go for triplechannel
6x4gb lol or it was 3x4gb not sure
well first 8 cored cpu is gona be beckton a xeon processor comming around q4 2009

The point is to reach max capasity for ram in vista (32gigs)

64-bit CPUs can address 16 Exabytes of data, so this is to max out the amount of memory that the memory controller and motherboard can handle, rather than maxing out the maximum that Vista can handle, or that the CPU can use.
Either way, I doubt server and workstations would be running the same exact versions of Vista as home users, so the limit doesn't apply there, or most likely won't.
