We use these as memcached boxes with 32GB, and they rock.
We didn't replace our older boxes, though, because part of the beauty of
memcached is having disparate sized boxes in the same pool. As our
older boxes kick the bucket, we'll probably remove them permanently,
rather than replace them, but for now they stay.
They can do 64GB, but you need to use 4GB DIMMs, which are still fairly
