I'm looking at an ASUS P6T7 WS SuperComputer MOBO and want to use a stockpile of HP Proliant Server 4GB ECC DDR3 memory modules to populate all available 6 slots (24GB). The board supports ECC memory, but I was told that the memory is very specific to the HP servers and most likely would not work in any other computer. Of course, another person of questionable authority, stated otherwise. Before I invest in this MOBO, I wanted to get some degree of confidence from those in this forum what actually is the FACT. Will it or Will it not?
It should work fine. The memory is just stamped with HP's part sticker rather than the normal manuf. sticker, it is made to the same specifications as other memory. I don't even buy the HP memory most of the time, its cheaper to track down what type it is and just buy that memory type from someone else.
