Hi to all here.

I have a Matsonic MS8308EP board & Crucial Scan says that it only
accepts Non-ECC RAM. However I am currently running my PC with ECC RAM installed which WinXP correctly recognises as 2 x 512 sticks. Since it is obviously working should I leave well alone or will it damage my PC using these sticks.
The sticks of RAM currently installed are :
2 x 512Mb - Samsung PC133R ECC SDRAM M390S6450AT1-C75


I am thouroughly confused & bewildered by the intricacies of memory & would appreciate any help you can offer.

Regards,
CDH

It shouldn't cause harm, your ECC features just wont happen if the machine only uses Non ECC.

I believe any change would be barely noticeable if at all. I could br wrong though

Thanks for all replies. I’m going to build a server now with that board & put those sticks in it. I’m sure there won’t be any problems now you’ve explained it but I’ll keep you updated if there are any.



Once again, thanks
