First build - SuperMicro X9DRL-EF Need help with RAM selection

Hopefully this will be easy for the pros here, but as I am a server virgin, I am second guessing myself.
SuperMicro shows the board has 8x 240-pin DDR3 DIMM slots
supporting 1866/1600/1333/1066/800MHz ECC DDR3 SDRAM 72-bit, 240-pin gold-plated DIMMs

  • Support ECC and non-ECC UDIMMs
    I located some of these - HP/SAMSUNG 32GB PC3L-10600L 1333MHz LRDIMM 1.35V MEMORY MODULES

While I think they will work, I was hoping for some confirmation from that are far smarter, and better looking that I…
Can anyone confirm the HP/Smasung modules will work with this MOBO?

Those LRDIMM (L after the bandwidth 10600) will work, but usually you can find RDIMM (R) for cheaper. LRDIMM allows higher capacity at a slight latency cost. You cannot mix LRDIMM, RDIMM, and UDIMM.

  • 8x 240-pin DDR3 DIMM slots
  • Up to 512GB DDR3 ECC LRDIMM
  • Up to 256GB DDR3 ECC RDIMM
  • Up to 64GB DDR3 ECC/non-ECC UDIMM

ECC RDIMM is going to be the cheapest most likely with 16GB modules now to be had for $20 per.
