Maximum Memory Speed
See the table below for the actual maximum memory transfer speed in Independent Channel / Memory
Sparing Configuration.
DDR3 memory speed depends on the type of DIMMs, the native memory bus speed of the memory
controller and memory configuration. All memory buses operate at the clock frequency of the DIMM with
the lowest frequency.

Maximum Available Memory
See the table below for the maximum memory size that you can actually use on your system.
The maximum available memory is less than the maximum physical memory supported by your system
because some chipsets require PCI resource space of about 750MB. PCI resource requirements vary

NOTE:

Up to four hard drives can be installed in the Embedded SATA configuration.

Hot plug insertion/removal are not supported in the Embedded SATA configuration.

All drives within a RAID array should be of the same type, capacity and rotation speed.

Up to two kinds of drives can be mixed in a drive cage.

To configure a large-capacity RAID array, it is recommended to configure in RAID 6 or RAID 60 in
order to minimize the risk of becoming multiple hard drives failure during the RAID rebuilding process.

It is recommended to set RAID array configuration drives less than eight in order to minimize the risk
of becoming multiple hard drives failure.
