DIMM to Server cross reference

I don't know of any database like that, but it would sure be useful! :)

Off the top of my head those DIMM's should work in 1950's, 2950's and R900's.   They may also work in 2850's, but I have not had a chance to try it yet.  (2850's are DDR2, but slower, not sure if the 5300's will run at that speed, but should)

Does anyone know of a cross-reference online that I can enter a DIMM
specification, and find a list of servers / motherboards that use that
spec of DIMM?

For example, I have a pile of 2GB PC2-5300 DDR2 ECC Registered DIMMS
here removed from a Sun X4200 and salvaged from a dumpster (!). I am
pretty sure these are compatible with the PE 1950 and slower
DDR2-socketed PowerEdges.

If not, I should start compiling a Sun-Dell crossreference. (Consumer
mobos are rarely ECC + Registered - although I'd pay extra for one
considering how much old registered memory I find.)
