any good single 16gb sticks of ddr3 out there?

I remember a year or so ago hearing that a few companies were making single sticks of 240 pin ddr3 memory with a capacity of 16Gb. I've only found a few on the market though. I'm trying to help a friend's system get 16gb of ram again after one of the Ram dimms on his MB died. Does anyone know where a guy can get 16gb of ddr3 on a single stick? Thanks in advance.

what cpu/mobo is he using?

and 16 gb sticks are server memory only..

Since most consumer mobos have 32gb limit, those sticks are pretty rare. Server ram would be one to go. As quick Google search also tells. I'm not sure there even is normal (non-ECC) 16gb sticks of DDR3.

It's an itx Asus ROG board LGA 1155, I'm forgetting the exact name. I actually built the computer for him a couple years ago. Personally I think he should contact Asus, but he's being stubborn. I'll post some pictures of the system when I can if you're interested.

Both are ECC ram. They would need mobo that can use ECC RAM.

None of LGA1155 Asus ROG boards have that capability. It might be LGA1155 Workstation board.

E2: Removed. Got wrong product code. That AsRock stick seems legit thing. But you'd get several DDR3 8gb sticks for the same price.

Thanks for the replies everybody! ECC memory will usually work in non ecc motherboards, but the error correction will not be utilized. I'll check out some of these options and make a decision.

Not according to what I found on google :( Seems like getting a new motherboard is a better, more reliable option.

If the ram I get doesn't work then I'll try to convince him to go without his epic gaming machine while Asus sends him a replacement. With luck they'll let him keep the old board while I wait on a new one to transplant in. It's a tiny system so hardware swaps aren't exactly easy haha.

That's strange, I found the opposite when I searched it. I guess I'll either test it out or contact Asus.

It might be that you can use non-ECC ram on ECC supported mobo but not other way around.
