SuperMicro has some reasonably cheap boards with 16 667Mhz (cheap!)  
memory slots.  16 2GB modules are ~$1300.  At YellowBot we have less  
than a dozen servers, but we've recently filled them ~all up with 2GB  
modules.  It didn't cost us much and for now we're pretty close to  
"plenty memory for everything".  Highly recommended.  :-)

Here's a 1U version with cheap support for 32GB memory:

Search for R266 and R276 for the 2 and 3U versions of the same-ish
