We have an IBM x3755 M3 - 7164D2G system with 4 x AMD 6272 CPUs
We want to install 16x16GB memory modules and to add another 16x16GB memory modules in the future, for a total of 32x16GB=512GB.
Here http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/xbc/cog/x3755m3_7164/x3755m3_7164mem.html the only 16GB memory module listed is: (1x16GB, 4Rx4, 1.35V) PC3L-8500 CL7 ECC DDR3 1066MHz LP RDIMM
In the Crucial products I haven't found any 16GB quad-rank x4.
Will the CT16G3ERSLD4160B - http://www.crucial.com/eu/store/partspecs.aspx?IMODULE=CT16G3ERSLD4160B modules work OK? (DDR3 PC3-12800 • CL=11 • Dual Ranked • x4 based • Registered • ECC • DDR3-1600 • 1.35V • 2048Meg x 72)? Will there be any performance difference?

It's always best, if possible, to purchase the RAM that is listed as compatible with your system.
I was able to find a link for the RAM that is compatible with that system:
This RAM is a 16GB, 240 pin DIMM, DDR3 PC3-8500, Quad Ranked Registerered ECC module. This product is also x4 like you require. Please let me know if you have any questions about this memory.
