post #381 of 670
Raminux I had no issues installing a samsung 950 pro M.2 into the M.2 slot. I bought the adapter card to install it in the pcie slot if I ran into problems but did not need it as it worked fine in the M.2 slot. The migration software worked fine and I was up and running quickly. If you look on this board some had reported some problems early on but the newest bios update seemed to solve any issues. I would say however that qualitatively I have not seen a tremendous benefit from the 950 pro compared to the ssd I was running previously but this may depend on the type of work you do

Good to know. I have placed my order for a 950 pro M.2 256gb. It will be my system drive. I got it on sale at newegg.ca for C$215 while a 256gb 850 pro sata ssd was priced at C$150. For the price difference, I preferred to get the nvme drive.

Im wanting to know what memory to use i have ordered ths asus Z10PE-D16 WS 2xIntel Xeon E5-2640 v4 do i have to use ecc or can any 2133 memory work im dont doing anything mission critical so im not fussed about the ecc. Also i want to use the samsung 950 pro m.2 but i have seen many people having problems using the 512gb as a boot drive and help would be gratefull guys thanks.

99% sure it'd need to be ECC. As far as the 950 Pro, I haven't been able to get my Bios to recognize it in order to set it as my boot drive. Works fine once I'm in Windows but it's purpose was too be my system drive.

I might be interested in the ram but already ordered the board and cpus
I have seen that people have working pro 256gb so i might go for one of them and have raid 0 ssd for games

sounds good, I'll PM you the relevant info.

Yeah, the 256gb version might work better for trying to boot off of it. I just know that on mine I can't get the 512gb version to work as boot able.

Why do so many people in those threads worry about ECC but not buffers and registers? Does it have something to do with fancy marketing FUD stuff being pushed around?

You'll need to use registered R-DIMM sticks as the C612 chipset does not support unbuffered RAM. Whether they have ECC or not doesn't matter if you don't want that feature.
In practice most R-DIMMs do have ECC, but ECC RAM is not necessarily registered.

Well, in my case it's because I don't know all the inspiration and outs of RAM yet. Working on it, but I've got a ways to go yet...

Stuff that's marketable tend to be mentioned much more frequently, unfortunately often picked up by people out of context.


Just look for DDR4 that's labelled as R-DIMM. Those have the registers needed to correctly interface with E5 RAM controllers on C612. R-DIMMs usually do have ECC, and it's common for vendors to call those products "Reg ECC RAM".

The other type of RAM more commonly seen on machines with less capacity is called "U-DIMM", which doesn't have the register. To add confusion, the E5s actually can support U-DIMM. The supported is just disabled on C612. You can use U-DIMM with E5s on X99.

My understanding is that 99% ofregistered buffer is ecc so i always use ecc as just to refer to as ecc is more of comon practice and understanding. i wanted more aesthetically pleasing over function for my self hence the question but ill have to get some heatsinks also might be interested in the ram im based in uk though
