Hi Tobias ,

Check this information:

When considering the memory configuration of your server, you should consider the following items:

DIMMs  within the server should all be the same type, speed, and size. Do not  mix different size DIMMs or DIMMs with different clock rates in the same  server. Doing so causes the system to set the memory system speed to  that of the slowest installed DIMMs.

DIMMs can be used either in a one DIMM per Channel (1DPC) configuration or in a two DIMMs per Channel (2DPC) configuration.

There are blue and black DIMM slots. Populate blue slots in a bank first.

Please check the link for further details:

Hope this help!
