General concencus is nope, I have to bust it open. One other suggestion from Shane is pasted below. It will work but if I have to reboot I might as well just pop it open and take a peek. I did have a vendor say it has to be 256s and offered me "a good deal" but honestly I don't trust how these boxes were set up.

Thanks everyone,

you could change the diag-level in OBP from min to max causing POST to run and
output to the console.  It will give you a summary of the size of memory per
slot per bank.
