jason decwest Posted December 9, 2004 Share Posted December 9, 2004 Some have said that in order to run 4 memory sticks you need: * very tight tolerance/timing [especially for un-registered memory] * maybe a bump in voltage is needed [helps accent the +(i.e. 1) or -(i.e. 0) logic values Not planning to overclock. But want 2Gig ECC [ seems that I might have to get 4 sticks of 512M since there is no 1G ECC un-registered] I'm a little concerned since that seems not as easy to pull off timing all four modules in sync. 2 motherboards I had considered were: ASUS P4C800-E or Supermicro server class on the cheap P4SCT. Both use the 875p or its brother the E7210. (Oh: on the ASUS P4C800-E its aimed at "enthusists" that overclock so you can bump up the voltage over V2.6. Supermicro disables that and hopes to run things stable (fine w/ me) but I would have liked to "help" the 4 sticks run reliably by bumping to V2.75) I'm in search of a good board to run ECC, be rock stable, and hold Northwood 3.2C processors. I don't want the Prescott and just bought three 3.2c's for the three servers. [i am trying to buy the memory and motherboards]. Here is a posting that shows the kind of timing problems I'd hate to have happen to me.
