It won't be a problem unless you start mixing ECC-RAM with non-ECC RAM.
However, if a board supports ECC-RAM you really ought to take advantage of that as it will provide greater data integrity.

If you do decide to use non-ECC RAM on a system that supports ECC RAM, you may have to specify non-ECC memory in the BIOS settings, depending on the specific memory controller and how it initializes memory.

According to the manual that motherboard only support non-ECC memory. I found it in Section 1.2 of the manual.
