Ryzen ECC Motherboards

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So we all know getting ram speeds to take well on many Ryzen boards is already an issue but an even bigger issue for many of us is lack of ECC support from the current motherboard offerings.

Please post any news on upcoming or current support for ECC on AM4 motherboards.

I currently know that ASRock lists support for ECC un-buffered memory on all of its X370 boards. I have not yet found anyone that has this and says it is working in Windows 10 yet though, but it is reported to be supported in Linux >= 4.10. Also currently it appears that it just accepts ECC ram not that said ram actually runs in ECC mode.

Please note I have yet to see any confirmation of ECC running in windows, if you know of one please post.

List of Current ECC Motherboard Support: (I will try to update this over time)

ASRock -All x370 support [Not confirmed to actually run in ECC mode] ECC unbuffered [Unconfirmed Windows support, Claimed support in Linux >= 4.10],
X370 Taichi -Linux 4.10 ECC support listed on QVL
X370 Killer SLI/ac
X370 Killer SLI
Fatal1ty X370 Professional Gaming lists 3 ECC chips in QVL
Fatal1ty X370 Gaming K4

ASUS -Support for ECC unbuffered
PRIME B350M-A/CSM
PRIME B350-PLUS
PRIME X370-PRO -3rd party claim -3rd party claim 2 Transcend ECC chips listed on Official QVL
(Yes the ROG CROSSHAIR VI HERO does NOT support ECC)

I wanted to update this thread that today I observed that Asus has 2 chips listed in the QVL for the x-370-pro
Transcend TS1GLH72V1H (ECC) 8G DS SEC552 K4A4G085WEBCPB
Transcend TS1GLH72V1H (ECC) 8G DS SEC552 K4A4G085WEBCPB

From what I can see it is the same chip but listed twice?

Here is the list from the Taichi which also now has ECC chips listed on its QVL as well:
2400 8GB Crucial CT8G4WFD824A.18FB1(ECC)
2133 8GB Samsung M391A1G43EB1-CPBQ(ECC)

Asus Prime X370 PRO does not work with kingstone ECC Ram. I have tested them myself. Wont boot.

Taichi claimed support for the Kingston is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjGWqTFultI&t=1004
KVR24E17D8/16 was the chip used. It is not listed in the QVL but in the video they claim to use and test it.

I am still trying to get confirmation of any ECC support working under windows 10.

Asus ticket support claimed ECC support on one specific Transcend memory kit only, and with bios 0515 and above.


Its surreal to me because the QVL only lists the memories they managed to get their hands on. And in 20 years of doing this I never used a QVL listed memory on any board I ever owned. JEDEC standards are clearly not being respected either by kingstone or asus. This being a server RAM kit, I suspect Asus is the culprit.

What I find interesting about the QVL for Asrock is that they have 3 chips listed for the Fatal1ty but only 2 listed for the Taichi... I guess they just got that 3rd stick and have not tested it in everything yet.

When new generations of chipsets first launch you really do need to stick to the QVL if you do not want to be left out in the cold. I remember this was the case back when X58 came out.

I'm ordering some Samsung ECC DIMMS for my Ryzen 5 1600/PRIME B350M-A setup this week. Ill be sure to post back with the results.

It's not on the QVL but I cannot find that Transcend stick in stock anywhere in AUS!

I know the Gigabyte Gaming 5 (and I'd assume the K7) "supports" ECC. There are about 10 difference ECC part numbers in the QVL. Some Micron, Hynix and Samsung.

Any updates on anyone's findings? Also curious
