ECC & Non ECC Memory

Can you mix ECC and Non-ECC in the same motherboard?

I have a workstation that came from a contractor that has ECC memory in it. It needs more but I don't know if I can mix and match ECC and non-ECC.

Thanks for the help =o)

  1. You'll just have to try it. Registered ecc ram won't run on desktops, but some regular ecc will.
  2. If it ends up not mixing, you should be able to just put all non-ECC in it and be fine. No sense in spending the extra cash on something that won't likely be needed.
