    Default Looking for some DDR ECC Server memory

    Hi,

    I'm on the lookout for some DDR ECC server memory, preferably it should DDR 266 but I think DDR 400 might also work with the right CPU, FSB and bus speeds permitting (it's a P4 CPU). It has to be ECC spec server memory though.

    Please let me know what you have and your asking price. Thanks.

    Hi,, are you adding ram, or installing to board with no ram.. Probs best matching the ram spec on current ram if you have some.

    what size sticks are you after?

    what is the server or mobo? sometimes spec needs to be exact, rank/speed etc.

    OK,

    The memory stick that's in it is 512Mb of Infineon PC2100R-20330B1 that is DDR 266, CL2, ECC Registered. This is why I am asking for DDR 266 as an ideal situation.

    It's an old Dell server board with PCI-X slots. I am presuming that it needs 266Mhz memory for a 533Mhz FSB CPU, although on some boards you could get away with 400Mhz DDR. I don't have much experience with these old server boards, but some AMD DDR non-server boards of this era were quite fussy about which memory speed withwhich FSB CPU.

    I've probably got something suitable in the magical WEEE pile. I'll take a look for you.

    I have here 2 sticks with info on the chips:
    TYI DDR16803MJ-7A PC266/300 0226
    They came of a Old Dell server, and i thought they are 256 mb double sided.
    for 15 euro i'll send them to you, but beware, i can't garantuee the working status.
    This is what a signature looks like. Lame, isn't it?

    I've got:

    4x 256MB PC2100 (DDR266) CL2 ECC Reg DIMMs
    6x 512MB PC2100 (DDR266) CL2 ECC Reg DIMMs

    Same brand even, these are also Infineon sticks of RAM.

    Let me know which ones/how many you need and I'll get some in the post to you.

    I received a package from Andy this morning. I just wanted to say...

    "Thanks, for the memory..."

    (I sound like Bob Hope!! )

    Joking aside, Andy is a top bloke and he has allowed me to resurrect my Dell 600SC server.
