ECC RAM is Error Correcting Code RAM. It is mainly used in servers.

Error Checking and Correction.

ECC RAM, checks and (mostly) corrects data that has for one reason or another become corrupted. It is most common-ally used in servers, and most motherboards in personal computers do not support it's use.

Hence Non-ECC, is the reverse situation, and is the most common RAM for home PC's.

Thanks Lastchip.

Hello Gongoozler

Glad to see you're still one this forum.

You were the first person to reply to my first thread many years ago - wanted to know how to switch the monitor on or something equally technical!

I have not forgotten !
Thanks again.
