IT'S THE NECROMANCER!! ;)

In answer to your question, if you dont have a motherboard that supports it, you wont be able to use ECC memory. :)

Processor AMD FX-6100 Hex-core, 3.3GHz > Intel Core 2 Duo Dual-core, 1.6GHz
Memory 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz >  Crucial 3GB DDR3 1066MHz
Graphics Radeon HD7770 + Radeon HD5570 > Intel 3000 Integrated Graphics
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 Socket AM3+ > OEM Latitude XT2 Motherboard Socket P
Storage Seagate Barracuda 2TB SATA 7200.14 > Samsung 64GB SSD SATA 3Gbps
Power Supply Cooler Master Elite ATX 500W > OEM Dell Power Supply 90W
Case Zalman Z11 Plus 4x 120mm fans, 3x 80mm > OEM Dell Latitude XT Case

Since it is hard to find information about 16 GB on a p35 chipset, I'm posting my findings in this thread.

 

I can verify that 16 GB DDR2 RAM on a p35 chipset works. My CPU is a Q9450 and my motherboard is an ASUS p5k Premium. The system is running Fedora 25 and is able to allocate all 16 GB RAM. However, since I just installed the RAM so I haven't been able to do any long term testing.

 

Oh! I almost forgot...

 

The RAM is: 4x4 GB G.Skill Performance Kit DDR2-800MHz PC2-6400 F2-6400CL5Q-16GBPQ

The cheapest I'm seeing this kit for is $355 USD. Were you able to find it for less?
