    Supermicro X8SIL RAM compatability / availability?

    Has anyone been able to find any compatible RAM in 2G DIMMs for the SuperMicro X8SIL motherboard running either Corei7 or X34** LGA1156 processors? And what about reasonably priced 4G modules? I just want to make sure to purchase the right RAM before moving to a setup with this board / processor. Unless the RAM for this is crazy priced, I really don't want to go the Core2 Quad route when for about the same I can go with the newer LGA1156 stuff. But I have seen where people are having issues with RAM compatability and availability.

    Supermicro has a tested memory list for each server on their web site.
    They also sell the RAM so you know it will work.

    It looks like Kingston KVR1333D3E9S/2G will work for 2GB modules.
    From what I have seen on 4GB modules pricing so far, all I can say is WOW.
    $400+ for 4GB, so anything over 8 GB on these setups just doesn't seem reasonable yet.

    You have to use DDR3-1066 for 4GB DIMM, and the one I know for sure works is about $11-$20 more than the DDR3-1333 4GB.
    This is the one we are using now and it works (finally after trying a bunch of others): KVR1066D3Q8R7S/4G

    I strongly urge you to buy the RAM using Supermicro part numbers if you can. I have purchased RAM that Kingston's configurator recommended and matched the boards's specs but did not work when I put it in the server. Both Supermicro and Kingston pointed their fingers at the other and I had to throw the RAM away and buy the RAM from Supermicro.
