I have been trying to find any 256GB (8 x 32GB) ECC kit for 3970x for 2 hours with zero luck. Confusion just keep mounting up.
I’m considering MSI Creator TRX40 or Zenith Extreme II. Their websites have been unhelpful. Any motherboard, 256GB ECC combo recommendation ? Direct link to the product would be most appreciated. I have been trying to find one in vain.
Thank you in advance !
What market are you in? Are you trying to find some on the QVL or just 32gb sticks in general.
Ideally QVL, but as long as it is ECC and will work with 3970x Im willing to give it a go
Are you targeting a certain speed? I have yet to have any ECC issues with my 1950x or 3900x/2700x both have had ecc in them at various points of time.
Also what market?
Market wise I’m in UK, but USA also works
Memory.net is decent they have pretty much all mainstrem 2666 sets in stock no 2933 and the one 2933 i rolled the dice on amazon (no name brand) while were ECC and would OC to 2933 did not load at 2933 by default and are pretty sketch but were cheaper.
I have also used Provantage.com as well before for ECC
Thank you, that was very helpful. I found 1x32GB UDIMM with ECC Kit.
I’ve got one more stupid question. There is no 8x32GB kit. If I were to buy 8 of those, that should work fine ? Or would I be doing something stupid ?
They should, when you are buying kits thats just the vendor saying they will OC to this speed, but since 2666 isnt an overclock should be zero issue
If you go with memory.net might be worth contacting them via email if they can give you a bit of a discount for getting 8 and shipping overseas.
Good stuff. Yeah ECC memory is not generally associated with overclocking. Like @mutation666 shared, since these are relatively low clocks, I wouldn’t expect to see any issues with combining different kits at 2666.
For manufacturers, it wouldnt make a whole lot of sense to bundle 8x32 GB into a package for consumers (i.e. not enterprise). Those items would sit on the shelves longer–much lower demand.
By the way 256GB, you’re building one hell of a beast! I’m going with 128GB, I’m used to maxing out memory, but I’m reaching on point where I literally have no way to utilize extra capacity.
