16gb of ram in 8gb ram compatible mobo

Go to solution Solved by SkyHound0202,

The board claims to only support "non-ECC, un-buffered memory".

That said, ECC stick might still work so long as it is unbuffered, albeit in non-ECC mode (The QVL did mention one ECC stick, namely the Kingston KVR1333D3E9S/4G, an unbuffered ECC stick).

But the memory compatibility differs between board to board and stick to stick, so your mileage may vary.

Hi 

So i have a asrock h55m-le mobo with a xeon x3440 and 8gb of ram and i wondered if i could 1. put 16gb of ram in it to see if it would work anyway and 2nd can i just use ECC ram on it? 

Since the cpu is ECC ram compatible but i dont know if it would still work in a normal motherboard. 

Im planning to upgrade to 16gb of ram especially because ecc ram on ebay is really cheap.
