Any reason to get non-ecc ram for desktop when ecc is cheaper?

Recommended Posts

So I have an lga1366 and server parts are much cheaper. Practically all ddr3 ram that comes in 3 packs is cheaper if you get ecc ram rather than "desktop" ram. Obviously server ram isn't going to be on the manufacturer approved ram sheet but neither is most ram. Will server ram run fine on a non server mobos (typically)? 

 

Mobo in question is rampage ii gene though I don't expect anyone to know the specific compatibility of my particular mobo.

Depends on the type of server RAM. If it's unbuffered ECC, it'll probably work, albeit without ECC.

 

Buffered RAM most likely won't work at all.
