Hello,

FB-DIMM is not compatible with your motherboard, you know the reason why. The memory is notched differently from conventional 240-pin DDR2 (check the image below). Moreover, it uses a different technology compared to normal memory and it supports ECC function as well.


There are many other systems that use FBDIMM memory (Fully Buffered memory) but mainly I have seen them being used in servers or workstations using "Xeon 5000/5100 series and beyond".

There are many models that use this memory but I will list a few :
Lenovo Thinkstation D10
Dell PowerEdge 1950
Dell PowerEdge 2900
Dell PowerEdge 2950
etc.

Hope that helps.
