Can I put 2x32 GB unbuffered ECC DDR4 2666 ram in a Gigabyte H310M A 2.0 motherboard?

see title. I am looking at buy a lightly used workstation on super cheap. Has 4x32gb RAM (DDR4 2666, ECC unbuffered) to cannibalize some parts for a budget upgrade to my system (CPU+motherboard, which also means I need more RAM). It's a great deal if I can use the CPU+RAM from the workstation and buy a cheap lga 1151 motherboard that fits my current GPU.

 

Can it work in that motherboard with a 64 gb limit? Will it not post/function at all? Will it use 64 gb total in two channels? Will it treat each 32gb as 16 gb max (per slot)?

What ranking and memory devices does the DIMM's use? It's possible for it to work, but nobody can guarantee anything. If the DIMM's are x4, don't even think about it.

Main: AMD Ryzen 7 1700X, Nvidia GTX 780, 16 GB 2667 MT/s DDR4 Fedora 33 x86_64

Secondary: Intel Xeon X5670, Nvidia GTX 660, 24 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3 Windows 10 Home x86_64

Server: Intel Xeon X5670, 60 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3-R Ubuntu Server 20.04.1 LTS x86_64

Laptop: Intel Core i5-3320M, 16 GB 1600 MT/s DDR3 Fedora 32 x86_64

I do not see any compatibility with ECC memory on the list so i dont think youll be able to have much luck there

ECC works in non-ecc boards as long as it isn't buffered AFAIK. Just don't get the ECC function, which I do not care about

not sure what the answer to your question is? Are you asking about the RAM sticks or the DIMM slots on the motherboard?

Specifically the memory. ECC comes in some flavours that normal hardware can't use. For example "2Rx4 is 2 ranks of x4 memory devices, which wouldn't run on anything consumer grade. x8 and x16 is prettu safe, though.

Not too sure. The exact designation of the ram is samsung m391a4g43mb1-ctd

Looks like 2Rx8
