I bought these Crucial chips on What, got 3 for a total of 12 GB. for $100. Thought it was a great deal until I tried to use them on any of my motherboards. Not a single motherboard I have will support these chips and not a single one that I thought about buying does. Can someone tell me what motherboards will except Crucial DDR3 memory chip CT51272BB1339.

It is impossible to do a backward compatibility check for all motherboards that your new module will work in so why don't you run each motherboard through the Crucial Advisor and see if that new RAM is compatible (which is what should have been done up-front). Sometimes, buying RAM before you check for motherboard compatibility turns out to be like "trying to put the cart before the horse." BTW, did you get this RAM directly from Crucial or did you get it from a "reseller?"

On our site if you do a search for the base part number, it will give you some results for motherboards. In this case, the base part is CT51272BB1339. Here is a link to the search results:
On this page, you will see a gray bar that says "upgrades for motherboards" with a "show all" in the bar.
These parts are registered ECC memory. Typically speaking, you would be looking for a server motherboard to use these parts in.
