Some ecc ram will run in a desktop board (the ram must not be registered) if it's the same pin count, but there's no way to predict if it will work. Given a choice, stick with non-ecc ram for a desktop.

it'll only work if you're running a processor with a memory controller supporting ecc.
Since I'm assuming the board above is a z68 variant, I would guess it isn't supported. But if in doubt google : intel ark <processor> where <processsor> is your model number (2500k or whatever)
