memoryless Posted November 26, 2013 Share Posted November 26, 2013 I have a HP Z420 Workstation. I am trying to upgrade the memory from 16GB (8x2GB) to 32GB (8x4GB). I have purchased 8 CMX8GX3M2A1600C9 (4GB XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz, 9-9-9-24) DIMMs but they don't appear to be compatible: when I turn the computer on, it doesn't display anything, and after a few seconds, fans go to max speed! According to the workstation's spec, it supports up to 64GB ECC unbuffered DDR3 1600MHz for my CPU. My questions: Does this memory (CMX8GX3M2A1600C9) have ECC? The Corsair spec doesn't say.Is it possible that my system only allows ECC memory and doesn't work with non-ECC memories?Is this memory unbuffered? I'm under the impression that most consumer memories are unbuffered.Is there such a thing as "quad-channel" memory? Could this be my issue?!
