    Acceptable memory for i7-980X Processor Extreme Edition


      I am a video editor and want to max out my new system build with i7-980X Processor Extreme Edition. I am researching parts right now and see that it can handle up to 24GB DDR3 but only at 1066MHz. I also read a spec sheet somewhere that said it did not support EEC type memory. I have searched the entire web for 6 sticks of 4GB DDR3 (tripple channel) at 1066MHz. The only thing I can is EEC server memory. Does this processor handle EEC type memory sticks or not? If not, then what other options do I have to get over 12GB of DDR3 Ram? Thanks.
