Would not function. CPU is Xeon E5-2687W, there is no reason that this memory would be incompatible that I am aware of - this CPU is validated with many different modules of the same density, voltage, speed, and layout. This is the third Mushkin product in a row that has failed or not lived up to expectations for me.
First was Redline DDR3-2166 memory (4x4GB, P/N 993997), which would not run stable at anything above 1333 at recommended timings and voltages. Second was a pair of DDR3-1600 4GB SODIMMS, BOTH had errors in Memtest86+. Third was this memory, which fails POST with a memory compatability error.
Even though they are a local business, I have to wash my hands of them.
Mushkin used to be SO GOOD - I've only bought Mushkin for about 8 years now. Even better was the fact that if I ever had a bad stick (really rare), I could drive down to their HQ and they would swap it right out for me. It's really too bad, they seem to me to be slipping...
