Thanks for posting the follow up. I'm really surprised that you see an improvement in boot times. If anything, i could see it slowing a bit as there is more RAM to initialize during the POST.

I would have to think that's more of a placebo effect anyway. It should take longer to initialize all that memory. But I'll also agree, it's a pointless overkill on a desktop system...$75 that could have been spent elsewhere on components that would make a difference. I have 24 GB in a Dell PowerEdge R710, running 5 virtualized Windows 2008 R2 servers, with power and memory to spare.

I dunno'. That 12 GB extra is just about right for running Firefox Portable out of a Ram Disk.

We use PowerEdge R710's for all virtual servers at my shop as well. I have 4 of them running in a QA/DEV data center area with 24GB of RAM each. I'm averaging about 10-15 concurrent linux VM's on each one.

I've got a handful more R710's (about 8) running anywhere between 64GB and 98GB of RAM and hosting about 150 VM's.

I love these R710's. Quiet and cool. However, rebooting hosts with 64 or 98GB of RAM takes about 2 minutes just to initialize the RAM and there is no BIOS option to quick boot 'em either. So, a reboot takes about 3-4 minutes.
