    So it must support single memory sticks with a capacity of 16GB each? I don't think it actually exists 'yet'.

    The Bl490 appeals:

    144GB max (I think only 8GB sticks are available at the mo)
    2X mez expansions

    Some x86 server support 256GB of RAM

    By the way
    18 x 8 =144
    32 x 8=256

    18 slots - 9 per processor. Only half the memory available if 1 processor used. So it'd be 8Gb DDR3 ram being used.

    Limited availability and high premiums for 8GB DIMMs
    Although I'm sure this will change over time.

    I had a look at the specs and it is 18 x 8GB. Must be bordering on the limit of how many slots can be fit on a modern motherboard.
