The Cisco UCS C240 M3 Rack Server is designed for both performance and expandability over a wide range of storage-intensive infrastructure workloads, from big data to collaboration. Building on the success of the Cisco UCS C210 M2 Rack Server, the enterprise-class Cisco UCS C240 M3 server further extends the capabilities of the Cisco UCS portfolio in a 2RU form factor with the addition of the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family, which delivers an outstanding combination of performance, flexibility, and efficiency gains. The Cisco UCS C240 M3 offers up to two Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family, 24 DIMM slots, 24 disk drives, and four 1 Gigabit Ethernet LAN-on-motherboard (LOM) ports to provide exceptional levels of internal memory and storage expandability and exceptional performance.
Dual socket, compatible with Intel Xeon E5-2600 family processors.

There is no memory installed as standard.
General memory upgrade information:
For optimum performance, populate at least one DIMM per memory channel per CPU.
Do not mix DIMMs with different voltages, frequencies, or types (registered and unregistered). If you mix 1.35V and 1.5V DIMMs, the system defaults to the 1.5V mode. If you mix DIMM frequencies, the system defaults to the lowest frequency.
DIMMs for CPU 1 and CPU 2 (when populated) must always be configured identically.
Memory mirroring reduces the amount of available memory by 50% (quantity of DIMMs must be even for mirroring).
When single- and dual-rank DIMMs are populated for 3DPC, always populate the dual-rank DIMM in the blue DIMM slot first (blue slot) and the single-rank DIMM last in the black DIMM slots (only the 4GB DIMMs are single-rank; all other DIMMs that Cisco offers on this server are dual-rank).
By default, all DIMMs run at 1.35V, which yields 1333MHz memory speeds. To run the memory DIMMS at 1600MHz, you need to go into the BIOS or set the policy with UCSM (service profile) to run in Performance Mode. This forces the DIMMs to operate at 1.5V and yields 1600MHz speeds, provided:
The DIMMs are 1600MHz devices
The CPUs chosen support 1600MHz operation
There are less than 3 DIMMs per channel
With 3 DIMMs populated per channel, memory always runs at 1.5V regardless if the BIOS setting is low-power mode (1.35V) or performance mode (1.5V)
