I’m currently building a small machine learning workstation for personal use: 5965WX, 2x3090s, and Pro WS WRX80E-SAGE SE WIFI.
I’m hoping to purchase 8x32GB RDIMM 3200 modules but am having trouble finding compatible RDIMMs for the Pro WS WRX80E-SAGE SE WIFI motherboard.
Does anyone have experience purchasing the following modules online? Or have any expertise to share about doing this?
Sounds good, thanks for the added confidence I think ill go for memory.net then. The only thing I don’t understand is how to judge the compatibility of modules if they aren’t on the approved parts list. You say that you got Samsung 8x32GB RDIMMs but that density for Samsung isn’t on the approved list. What am I missing here?
Yeah the ASUS QVL list is clearly on the pathetic side and I now regret not mentioning that on my ratings/satisfaction questionnaire.
I first investigated the QVL lists of other WRX80 boards by Asrock, Supermicro and Gigabyte to get a much larger list of compatible memory models that were at least in theory compatible with Threadripper Pro.
Once I had the model numbers with the capacities and speed I needed for my usecase, I validated which models were also guaranteed to work with my ASUS WRX80 board on the memory.net site taking into account price.
EDIT: I just dug up the model number:
Samsung 1x 32GB DDR4-3200 RDIMM PC4-25600R Dual Rank x4 Module
I’ve been using 8 of these (256GB) for about 6 months and haven’t had any problems so far.
I was aware that RDIMM total limit is 512GB, but can’t you go higher if you use load reduced DIMMs?
Also, the Asus board is the one Puget Systems sells, so I’d be very surprised that it was limited to 512GB. EDIT: Actually I just checked the website and I think you may be right, they only sell up to 512GB ECC in their configurations. Bummer.
