    I think I'll wait for a bit.

    Can't believe I'm saying this.. but those prices aren't actually 'that' bad if you stay under 3200mhz...

    .all those GBS and its not EEC!! is there a problem with such high capacities without EEC support?

    In all honesty unless you're doing something where it's important to be 100% accurate (and even then there are limitations to ecc ram) then in most cases you can get away without eec. Something like 3D rendering can imo be done without ecc but something like working out the next vaccine to cure an illness would likely benefit from ecc.

    Yup, if you're running a specific heavily cache dependant network or productivity/development application, or filesystem like ZFS that operates assuming it's on ECC, then using ECC makes sense. Otherwise, not really. More dense modules are a bit more statistically likely to have bitflip events, but without the RAM being permanently packed with a huge cache of data, it's unlikely to impact anything significant.

    And ECC generally runs slower in freq and CL so therefore Intel can't squeeze all the perf out of this pinnacle of ego processor

    i wonder if the 1.2V means that you can easily overclock them to next bracket performance level. Yet I don't think I need that much of ram anyway.

    But if you care about what is on your PC, it is worth having.

    I just upgraded my PC, and this is the first time for years that I haven't got ECC ram. It means I have 3200MHz ram rather than the 2666 that ECC tops out at, but it means I spent just over £100 on my 16GB rather than the £190 that ECC was going to cost. The big big problem with ECC is that there isn't any choice atm, I would love to have had ECC and was prepared to pay more for it just not double.

    I'm actually surprised that overclockers don't use ECC ram. The speed rating is AIUI just down to the JEDEC standards not the ram capability, and it would be nice to know that your overclocked RAM is stable.
