It’s possible to use ECC server RAM inside of your regular desktop computer at home, but is it something you SHOULD do?

I'm running my R5 3600 with 64GB of micron single rank ecc ram. One more advantage to the stability is, that it runs 3200Mt/s at 1.2V and stays perfectly cool without the need for heat spreaders. The standard voltage also has the advantage, that it runs the 3200Mt/s stock without having to use D.O.C.P. . And it might be more gentle to the cpu's memory controller.

ECC is not worth the price. Especially in Workstations. I'm managing 20 CAD stations in my workplace I switched out from ECC to regular PC memory and none of my users notice a difference in performance or crashes. And my tracking proves this out over the past 8 years. Save the money and put it to something else (another stick of ram maybe?) or get a thumbs up from your boss for saving a few hundred bucks on the new workstations you purchased under budget.

I wanted to upgrade from a i-5 quad to an i-7 but the new LGA 1151 slot isn't compatible with the old one. so the new CPU won't work on the old motherboard xd. I ended up giving my pc to my uncle cause his was dying and built myself a solid rig with a Ryzen 7 2700X and a RX 5500 XT graphics card along with 16gb of ram. Man 8GB cards have gotten cheap, I got the card for 200 bucks at best buy. It ain't the best card but it performed pretty decently. never buying intel again lol.

I’ve always wondered why hardcore gamers and PC enthusiasts that spend literally all day in front of their computer screens think ECC is stupid and unnecessary but not RGB. I recently started looking to build a new rig and all motherboards/cases/etc. seem to come with RGB in mind because it is something that customers want so badly. Would we all have affordable and easy access to ECC if these hardcores had wanted it instead of RGB? Do people really just spend all day looking at the side of their computers?

I'm using ECC for more than a year... and totally worth the inversion. Pro tip #1: If you want to check if the ram is in ECC mode on Windows PC, open CMD and type wmic memphysical get memoryerrorcorrection That command will give you a number. In my case the number is 6, non ECC memory usually you should see 3. Value Meaning 0 (0x0) Reserved 1 (0x1) Other 2 (0x2) Unknown 3 (0x3) None 4 (0x4) Parity 5 (0x5) Single-bit ECC 6 (0x6) Multi-bit ECC 7 (0x7) CRC Pro tip #2: Invest on a Stable PSU, i'm using a Corsair AX series, it's expensive but reliable.

Does average consumers really need ECC memory? The answer is no. This whole video in senseless and absurd. Nobody really have their PC running 24/7 with high calculation loads. And system crashes mostly caused by software errors, probably by 99,9%. Regular memory sticks are reliable enough, probably you will never have any problems with it.

Thing is I have been using non ECC in my PC's for many years, all the desktop PC's in every facility I have ever worked use non ECC memory, and in all that time has there never been an issue caused by memory errors. I work in PC support and I have never once seen a ticket were the issue was down to memory errors, to put that in perspective I work in a local authority and we support 15,000 users.

Both intel and AMD gain substantial framerate increase by using faster modules. Polish PurePC has proven than numerous time. Overclocking memory is worth it, but will take time. Will it crash? - it will just like badly overclocked CPU. You don't just press button and OC is done. Nah, overclocking is like software development. You need to test it before you consider it stable. Voltage, Frequency, Timings, Dual/Single Rank, Motherboard support. It's the same rule that applies to F1 racing results - you are trying to max out your performance, but you have to take into account the fact it takes time to get reliable results.

Yanking features and putting them back for an added cost is also what Microsoft does, or at least used to do, with Windows, like when they offered several tiers of Windows Vista or home and professional versions of Windows XP and 7. I guess they have done away with this now in Windows 10, opting to go more the Apple route at last. Will Intel ever learn? If not, will AMD at least beat them into submission for us?
