Mixing ECC AND None ECC Memory

 Share

So I have a Intel DH77EB Mobo

with a core i5 3470 and I thought why not try mixing ecc memory and none ecc and it booted I tried this in my other system same ram and it didn't work whats going on 

I heard very few motherboards support this and when I looked up if it would on my it said it said no it wouldn't and I so I didn't try and I opened up my pc while cleaning up the messy wiring and checking thermal paste I decided to try it, what harm could it do and to my surprise it booted now I have 16gb of mixed speeds and mixed types aswell

2x4GB 1600Mhz

1X4GB 1333Mhz

1x4GB 1333Mhz ECC

How is this working

ECC memory just disables ECC when put in systems that don't support ECC, so it's those that failed to work that are bugged
