12 memory slots are split between the two CPUs as follows; eight memory sockets for CPU 1, and four memory sockets for CPU 2. In a single processor configuration the T430 will support up to 256GB of memory. With two CPUs, 384GBs of memory is available using 32GB DDR4 registered DIMM (RDIMM) modules. Depending on your choice of processor, memory, and memory configuration, the system will support transfer rates of up to 2400MHZ. Only RDIMM memory modules are supported on this system.


SAS, SATA and nearline SAS, SSD drives are supported. Several different chassis configurations are available including:

  • Up to 8 x3.5” SAS, SATA, nearline SAS, SSD drives with optional flex bay
  • Up to 4 x3.5” SAS, SATA, nearline SAS, SSD drives with optional flex bay
  • Up to 16 x 2.5” SAS, SATA, nearline SAS, SSD drives with optional flex bay

The built-in PERC S110 features limited software RAID support. Several optional PERC RAID controllers including Dell's PERC H730, H730P and H830, support the full range of RAID options to ensure your data is protected.


There are 2 x PCIe 2.0 slots and 4 x PCIe 3.0 slots to support additional external devices. PCIe 3.0 delivers twice the data speeds compared to PCIe 2.0 technology. PCIe expansion slots can boost I/O performance, support high-end graphics cards, additional network connections, and solid state storage. Graphics on the system are handled by a Matrox G200 chip with iDRAC8 and 16 MB shared memory. For additional graphics support it can also be outfitted with either the single-width Q4000 or the double-width Q6000 GPU cards. GPU cards can only be installed on systems with redundant 1100W AC power supplies and must be of the same type.
