Xeon E5-2630

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys,

Me and my friend recent picked up a pair of E5-2630's for our server we want to build.

just curious do i have to use ECC memory with these CPU's in a Asus Z9PA-D8 motherboard, is my thinking if i use unbuffered memory were just limited to the max amount of memory?

You should use RDIMMs from the supported vendor's list. Overall stability is much better and a lot more predictable, especially for servers. I happen to have two machines at work that use these as testbeds and that was the issue we had with it. Swapped to RDIMMs and it was much more predictable and stable overall. This board in particular can be really really picky about UDIMMs.
