Hello, could someone help me with Memory Compatability?

I have the following motherboard : Supermicro X7DAE

With the following memory : 2 x 8gb Samsung : pc2 5300f 555 11 d0

The computer is stable, but when I try to add more memory it is not recognised. Now, the memory in question is either :

1) Samsung : 1 or 2 gb pc2 5300f 555 11 E0

2) Samsung : 1 or 2 gb pc2 5300f 555 11 B0

The model number is exact except the last letter, highlighted in bold. I have tried to extract information from Samsung but to no avail.

So, does the alternate last letter mean it cannot be mixed and it is a compatabilty problem i.e. I am going to need to find a load of D0, or is it that it is compatible and I just need to play with the memory setup in the Bios to get it to work.

I am trying to get it to recognise 32gb, the maximun it can recognise.

Any ideas or help will be appreciated.

Thank you

Hello, i have answered my own question. A clear case of RTFM. Page 2-6. There is a specific bank layout. I now have 24gb recognised. Hope this helps someone in the future.
