Which ECC memory for R9 3900X linux desktop?

I’m building a new workstation, and I would like ecc memory in it.
It has to be a silent pc, without water.
I’m running Fedora.
I’d like 2x16GB or 2x32GB.
I couldn’t find the qvl, I guess it’s not available yet.

asus com/Motherboards/Pro-WS-X570-ACE/HelpDesk_QVL/

Can someone point me in the right direction for good price/quality memory which would/might work.

The Asrock x570 extreme4 is a close second.
I’ll wait for a few review before I’ll make the purchase.
I want to be sure the chipset cooler is ‘silent’.

Thanks for all the feedback.

The memory speeds matter and we are only just seeing ecc faster than 2666. So it gets weird.

So how would your server build looked like? @wendell

OP is asking about a workstation build. Not a server. I’d imagine Wendell’s server build would be Epyc (pun intended)

Have there been any developments on this in the last few months? I’m looking at a 3900X build, and the RAM is the thing I can’t decide on.
