Asrock B75m ECC DDR3 Support

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
anybody tried to put ECC memory in this motherboard or similar chipset?

i have this computer it's using 4gb ram from my quad channel which leaves it with triple channel. i was too cheap to buy ram last year and look at the price now.

however i found on ebay:

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Hynix-8GB-2X-4GB-DDR3-PC3-8500-1066MHz-ECC-REG-SERVER-MEMORY-RAM-not-for-desktop-/291007673393?pt=US_Memory_RAM_&hash=item43c168b431

good looking ram for good price.

i am not sure it will work.

but you know back in the days for Q6600 or amd am2 cpus i was able to put in ecc and it works fine. some older computers like pentium can take ecc. oh wait maybe because the motherboard is dell.

the b75 is business class. so maybe it can take these cheap ram. i don't care too much speed it's just gonna be used for movies and leave on all day long.

ECC ram wont work properly in consumer grade motherboards, yes it will boot and function, but you will lose ECC capability. you need both the chipset and cpu to support ECC. i.e. Intel C226, Intel C608.

Anyways you wouldn't need ECC ram for anything but servers and workstations where one single error will corrupt the data.

hope this was helpful.
