Hynix DDR3 RAM compatible with Z87 pro? RAM issues

Hello. I just purchased an Asus z87 Pro mobo and am trying to use Hynix DDR3 SDRAM (10600) I have 4 8GB sticks. I can pull up the RAM in the Bios but it is not shown as usable RAM. I'm not sure if this will help but the CPU is a 4770K i7, 750W corsair power supply, windows 7 64bit sp1. Any help or anything I am overlooking?

the model number is HMT31GR7BFR4C

I have tried looking at MHz and voltage and don't see any red flags. help?

    Those memory modules are designed for servers not desktops.

    The memory is a Registered ECC module and your motherboard as well as your CPU doesn't support it. Your motherboard supports only Non-ECC memory. Hope that helps.

    Thank you maxalge for pointing this out. do you know if there is a fundamental difference between server and desktop RAM?


    @legohouse...Thank you for bringing this to my attention I had no idea what that even meant until I Googled it. I read that you can put Non-ECC RAM on an ECC supported system but apparently putting ECC RAM on a non-ECC system doesn't work? is that correct? if so, who wants to buy some RAM?
  6. Yes, you are right. Moreover, ECC memory is slower than Non-ECC however i'm talking here about milliseconds :)

    @legohouse. That is good information to know. I had no idea what any of this even meant a week ago.
