I have ordered an ASRock Z75 Pro3..

and i alread own some dell memory: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c...

it should work, im just concerned with it being ecc.. if i remember correctly from my A+ cert. it will work but cannot be combined with non ecc ram..

this will be a gaming rig, so ill eventually want to upgrade to faster memory, but for now im just checking on compatability.
what do you think?
thanks!

It should work, but you're opening up additional possibilities for it to not work by using ECC memory.

It will not work, most desktop MBs do not support ECC memory and even if they do they have it disabled so you would have to tinker with BIOS to renable it.

Your MB specs say it doesn't support it

Your link doesn't work and you forget that most motherboards do support ECC memory, they just don't support the ECC and have to disable it. It should run the memory as if it is not ECC compatible. My point is that it might not, but it should.
