I thought I recalled how server chips need like ECC registered or buffered/non buffered or whatever? Maybe this isn't the case anymore, my friend just wants a new build and I recommended the X3440 since its an i5 750 /w HT, if hes just gonna drop it into a plain jane desktop 1156 board does he need any kind of specific ram or just regular desktop memory for whatever the board is rated at?

Thanks

Yea he can just use plain old DDR3.

Xeon chips can run ECC or non ECC memory. Desktop chips can only run non ECC.

It should run normal memory just fine, other members on OCN do it. Get the chip, it is pure win. I plan to get one for myself one day.
