That sounds more like an AS4000 to me. Memory cards are added in pairs.

I've never seen one, but I'd always assumed it would fit on the opposite
side to the cabinet to the existing PCI slots. You can upgrade an AS4000
to an AS4100 by replacing the system 'drawer' with a larger one,
although you have to remove the second 8 slot PCI busses to do so.

The cpu card cage in an AS4100 fills 3/4 of the width of the system
drawer with the remaining being the PCI slots. The cpu card case
in an AS4000 fills half of the width.
