ECC ram vs. non-ECC
I'm shopping eBay for some new ram for one of my computers and I'm getting conflicting information. The user manual for my Asus ME-99VM motherboard says:
- "The SiS chipset does not support ECC. However, ECC memory modules may still be used, but the ECC function will not be available."
- "Now you need to make sure your computer (motherboard) will take ECC memory. If your motherboard takes non-ECC (non-error checking) this ECC stick will not work in there."

Maybe you could check with SiS themselves, on their website? I always thought ECC & non-ECC memory were not interchangeable. I know SiS does more of those things (making chipsets with AGP & PCI-E 16x support, stuff like that), so I presume it's a special feature for that chipset. But I did some googling, and apparently some chipsets do support both. The difference between ECC & non-ECC is the extra chip on the ECC DIMM. But I suppose they have the same pin-out, no?** Registered Linux User # 393717 and proud of it ** Check out www.zenwalk.org
