ah, he said 'all new as of a few months ago'.   actually, thats a 
2009-ish server, with quad Tigerton/Dunnington quadcore processors 
(roughly equivalent to the Core2 Q series), and it came with a 3 year 
onsite warranty.   It uses PC2-5300 fully buffered dram (ddr2-6700) so 
yeah, that ram is going to be expensive since its an older generation.  
looks to take 4x4 1/2/4/8GB sticks, in pairs, but if you have all 4 
CPUs, you probably need to populate all 4 banks. oh, and there were 
memory expansion mezzenaine cards, so bringing it up to 32 dimms total.

I figured for laughs I'd try and find a ram layout for it, but best I've 
found says its printed on the lid to the CPU/memory module.
