Adaptec controller RAM non-ECC?

All the competitors explicitly state they use ECC RAM -- for obvious reasons, or not?

Is the RAM Adaptec uses ECC? On some rare data sheets for some models, it says yes, but it's not explicit. I wonder what would happen with faulty data in RAM on a controller. Can the file system detect and correct single-bit errors?

Are there complete data sheets on the Adaptec controllers somewhere, that state whether the RAM is ECC or not?

  1. Adaptec has over 22 raid cards, kinda hard to guess which one you mean without the model number.

    I mean all the professional cards: Series 3, 5, 5Z, 6.

    Each of the specs says nothing about ECC. Just "xyz MB DDR2". True, I didn't click on every model, but you get the idea.
