  • Thing is I have been using non ECC in my PC's for many years, all the desktop PC's in every facility I have ever worked use non ECC memory, and in all that time has there never been an issue caused by memory errors. I work in PC support and I have never once seen a ticket were the issue was down to memory errors, to put that in perspective I work in a local authority and we support 15,000 users.

  • Both intel and AMD gain substantial framerate increase by using faster modules. Polish PurePC has proven than numerous time. Overclocking memory is worth it, but will take time. Will it crash? - it will just like badly overclocked CPU. You don't just press button and OC is done. Nah, overclocking is like software development. You need to test it before you consider it stable. Voltage, Frequency, Timings, Dual/Single Rank, Motherboard support. It's the same rule that applies to F1 racing results - you are trying to max out your performance, but you have to take into account the fact it takes time to get reliable results.

  • Yanking features and putting them back for an added cost is also what Microsoft does, or at least used to do, with Windows, like when they offered several tiers of Windows Vista or home and professional versions of Windows XP and 7. I guess they have done away with this now in Windows 10, opting to go more the Apple route at last. Will Intel ever learn? If not, will AMD at least beat them into submission for us?

  • In Linux world error less ram is essential because the way Linux run the errors in ram or memory is detremental for our performance. Linux uses more ram as available than Windows and it can load much of the or compete operating system to the ram than Windows

  • Talking about Benchmarks of ECC is kindof a joke even tho they are VERY impressive... if speed was the only concern you should just always run you applications at ring 0 and right on the hardware. There would be no system level error checking or exception handling which would make the system much "faster" - but would crash constantly. https was the same way - diffie-helman requires extra CPU cycles to compute keys but you still browse to https pages and you notice very little hit on performance. developers were afraid to implement it because "it would make the web slower" (it certainly has nothing to do with loading 6MB of JavaScript libraries for your homepage right?). Point is - security and stability is not were you should be looking for cutting-corner optimizations. Using less resource hungry software and holding lazy developers feet to the fire is how to speed things up overall. A lot of software is really just implemented in ways the developers themselves don't understand.

  • ECC is great for added stability, and that is the only reason to consider it (otherwise just use quality parts and adequate cooling). In a previous job working an IT helpdesk I had a workstation that supported ECC (and had RAID1/mirrored boot drives). It had a bad ram module in it and ECC kept the machine working at full capacity until we could order in a replacement module. No down time, no instability. On a related note, ECC only imparts a small performance penalty (about 2%), which almost no one would notice in reality working on a spreadsheet (really, only a synthetic benchmark will show it). In a gaming scenario I guess you could have slightly better stability when things heat up, or maybe avoid some texture corruption. And Linus Torvalds was correct, Intel is really bad at artificially locking out cpu features for no reason other than to squeeze customers for money (shocking move from the biggest gorilla right?).

  • Not to defend Intel, but Linus is wrong this time. We gamers/normal PC users DON'T need ECC. I've been using PCs since 1997, and it has become rarer and rarer over the years to get a random bluescreen caused by a memory error! So rare, that in the past 10-11 years (since 2010), I haven't had any bluescreen crashes caused by a memory error. And no, playing games and watching videos are not such "mission critical" activities, that they can't tolerate a random bluescreen once in a bluemoon! (again, NONE in over 10 years, and on the cheapest Intel based hardware no less!)
