The next dream machine better have 288GB of RAM or I will call it a fail.

Two thumbs for this board! WOO!

However, 2 thumbs down for availabilty.

Gigabyte server/workstation boards are extremely difficult to purchase/find for the DYI or any Joe Schmo consumer out there. In Canada, your choice is either Intel, Supermicro or Asus...and that's about it. Otherwise, great product.

Hey, Coldrage, no, this is more like how "The Miz" of WWE fame says it ... AAAAWWSSOMMMMEEE So, $1243.00 is a rock bottom price for a 16 gig stick? If I could stimulate the economy, this is how I'd like to do it!

Just to be sure we know what's going on here: a single dimm of this Netlist ram costs $1243 which drives the total of the processorless motherboard + 18 dimms to $22854. Of course, that is before the tax rebate you get for stimulating the economy.

 

Any word on performance? Is there no limit to how much RAM a server can utilize?

Not really. Especially with a dual socket motherboard, you could be running dozens of VM's on it, and many server applications will take all the RAM they can get.
