Dell PowerEdge R530 The Dell PowerEdge R530 is a 2U rackmount server which can come in a dual or single processor configuration. In a dual processor configuration, it can address up to 768GB (32GB X 24) of DDR4 RDIMMs with a max frequency of 2400 MHz. In triple channel configuration, the maximum is reduced to 1866 MHz. In a single processor configuration the maximum capacity is halved.

The processors that this system support includes all of the E5-2600 v3 and E5-2600 v4 series but in order to support the V4 series the system must come installed or be flashed with BIOS Revision 2.0 or newer. The R530 can be configured with up to 8 3.5" or 8 2.5" Hard Drives This system has 5 available expansion slots. With stock configuration you are limited to low profile, half-height expansion cards, but an expansion card is available that will allow you to install one full-height, full-length expansion card and one full-height, half-length card instead of attaching into motherboard slots 1 and 2 which are both low-profile and half-length.

The R530 can be equipped with up to 2 redundant 450W to 1100W power supplies. In a configuration with 2 E5-2650 v3 processors, 12 8GB DDR4 RDIMMs, dual 300GB 15K drives and redundant 750W power supplies you can expect idle power consumption to be roughly 161 watts. This will cost roughly $140.10 for a full year of idling with the national average cost of $.10/KWh. At full load you can expect power consumption of roughly 346 watts. It would cost roughly $308.08 to run the system at full load continuously for a year.
