    32GB RDIMM ECC RAMs for ASUS Pro WS X570-ACE

    Actually, I have no experience with this motherboard and I am not sure. But the official QVL list includes Kingston's RDIMM (see the attached file). It appears the motherboard works with both UDIMM and RDIMM. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Ryzen 9 5950x + 128GB ECC RAM

    I believe Ryzen can offer the same level of reliability as Epyc and Zeon platforms, as long as they support ECC RAMs. Moreover, Epyc and Zeon platforms are way more expensive.

    I plan to build a new computer based on Ryzen 5950x and use it as a server. I heard that all Ryzen CPUs support ECC DDR4 RAMs if the motherboard supports ECC. Can you recommend good ECC DDR4 RAM modules for Ryzen 5950x? I plan to install a total of 128GB RAM (i.e., 4 x 32GB ECC DDR4 modules)...

    SLI HB bridges

    Thank you for the reply. Actually, I wonder whether it makes sense to try SLI with two 1080 ti cards, or just save my money for 11XX cards. The reviews said that the performance of SLI of the Pascal cards are quite mixed.

    LG 43UD79 Information?

    I am using one now. The 43inch monitor is massive on my desk. I feel that it is too big for my usage. I wish they make it 40 inch instead of 43 inch. Moreover, it can save my neck if the panel can lower to the position so that it is just 1-2cm from the table. Otherwise, I am quite happy...

    Xeon == longer lifespan

    Some people claim that Xeon processors are more durable than the i7 counterparts. I seriously doubt it. Some also claim that Xeon processors are more reliable. I also doubt it. Can someone have experience to support/against these claims?
