Chipset and ECC memory
Posted on 2006-06-11
I have a couple of MicroCenter PoweSpec 7110 machines that I'm running Windows Server 2003 on. The spec sheets that came with them says they have Pentium P4 519 Processors, 1024 Full Speed Cache, 512MB DDR RAM, and Intel 915 Chipsets with 8MB integrated graphics.
I've just been reading Scott Mueller on ECC vs non-ECC RAM and the desirabity of using ECC RAM in servers. He says that whether ECC RAM can be put in a machine depends on the Chipset.
So....(1) would anyone know from the foregoing whether the Chipset I have supports ECC memory, or (2) where I might turn to find out?
As always, thanks much for help with this and for all the help I've received in the past from this great place.
