Q6600 ECC Support?

Go to solution Solved by Electronics Wizardy,

In that generation, the cpu doesn't have the memory controller, the board does, so if the board supports ecc + that cpu it should work fine. with ecc

 

What type of ddr2 ecc does it have? It likely only works with unbuffered dimms, so the reigistered dimms that were common back then work work.

Does anyone know if the Q6600 supports ECC Memory? I recently got an Asus P5W board which says it supports ECC DDR2 which I already have some of, but Intel ARK doesn't say if the Q6600 has ECC support or not

This is the list of supported CPU's for the board: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/P5W_DH_Deluxe/HelpDesk_CPU/

I believe that, for this gen CPU, it entirely depends on the board. If the board says it supports ECC and the Q6600, then I believe it should work. This forum post also seems to be discussing the same idea from a different angle: what motherboard supports a Q6600 with ECC memory.

I didn't even think about that, it still has a north bridge so that makes sense. My question seems kinda dumb now lol, thank you
