Looking for ECC memory for AMD X470 motherboard

Looking for ECC memory for AMD X470 motherboard

Hello, 

 

I am going to build a ryzen 7 2600 cpu and a ASRock X470 Master SLI/AC AM4 mothertboad, which does states it supports ECC. 

 

I looked on the memory finder for this motherboard and all the  ram listed showed as non-ECC. Am I reading the list wrong? Is Crucial have any memory for this mortherboard that has ECC? 

 

Thank you,

-Darin

Hey Darin,


Just wanted to let you know we're looking into this. There are some certification issues for ECC with the AMD systems that can complicate things. Hopefully we can have a more official response for you soon.

@dman777

We have heard back from our engineers on this matter.  They were able to get in contact with AMD and get a definite answer to your question.  What they found out is that your motherboard will turn on and work with ECC memory installed, but it will not utilize the ECC function.  AMD said that Raven Ridge only PRO parts (Commercial APU’s) support ECC.  The reason that we do not show ECC memory as compatible with your board is because you will have no added benefit of using ECC memory over standard non-ECC.
