I actually didn't need all the memory slots on Z10PE-D16 WS ( 2 x 32GB LRDIMM on order). I chose Z10PE-D16 WS simply because it was less expensive! I sometimes think the Z10PE-D8 WS was perhaps a better buy. I only prefer the configuration of the mofset heatsinks on Z10PE-D16 WS.

Yeah, you´re right. The d16 is less expensive because is older I think but the problem is the m.2 socket... it´s older and worst than the d8 one frown.gif I have just received this pcie card for my 950 pro m.2 card: http://www.delock.com/produkte/G_89370/merkmale.html
