Hello Rastaman, the DH87RL motherboard supports non-ECC memory only. Intel� Desktop Board DH87RL — System memory
A Haswell processor may support ECC memory 1.35V, but the processor could demand a 1.5V from the memory and this could generate damage on it.
Only Xeon processors support ECC memory for sure, but if the motherboard does not support it, I won’t recommend you to use it.
If you use an ECC memory on the board, you may get a memory error (3 beeps), therefore the system is not going to post. In the other hand, it may work, but eventually you may start getting errors.
My recommendation will be to use memory under specification, which are non-ECC DDR3-1600/1333 1.5V.
thanks a lot for your expertised answer! Do you know of any non-ECC 1600 MHz 2 GB DDR3L modules, please (if possible, available in Europe)?
Thanks a lot again!
Hi again, Sylvia,
sorry for bothering you again, but I would like to ask, how is it with the other required parameters of a memory used.
E.g. the board specifications say:
DIMM capacity Configuration SDRAM Density SDRAM Organization Front side/Back side Number of SDRAM devices 2 GB Double-sided 1 Gbit 128 M x 8/128 M x 8 16
I found a module, which has 8 devices.
Whould that cause any compatibility or other troubles?
Would you please provide me the complete model number of the memory you found? The link you attached me is giving me general information.
Number of SDRAM devices (16) is because this specific memory is double-sided, that means that each stick have to contain a chip distribution in the two stick sides and each chip has to be made based on 1Gbit density for a total of 8
For more details about memory construction and specifications on the memory please contact the memory manufacturer and they can give more information about that.
