Pros: Just writing this review to say this RAM works perfectly with the ASRock C236 WS ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1151 Intel C236 motherboard. I am using 64GB of it on the motherboard with no issues whatsoever. As of the date of this review, 16GB sticks of unbuffered ECC DDR4 are not easy to find. Normally what I do is go either to the manufacturer's recommended memory info page or to the tool on the Crucial.com website to see recommended RAM. Crucial had no info on this MB at the time of writing and Asrock's page just shows the manufacturer/spec of the individual memory modules, not the actual whole stick of RAM itself. Took a chance with these and it worked out very well. Highly recommended for this Asrock MB or any MB using the C236 chipset.
Cons: No fancy, glow in the dark heatspreader heatsink and who cares. ;)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock C236 WS ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1151 Intel C236
Pros: If you're looking for a MB to base your new workstation on, look no further. This motherboard is more fully-featured than your typical server motherboard that I've built workstations on in the past. It has good onboard audio and Intel HD video (when used with the proper CPU with integrated video).
Cons: Due to the design of the board, a larger aftermarket CPU heatsink such as the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo will block the first PCI-E slot. I found this out the hard way. That first PCI-E X16 slot is the only X16 electrical slot on the MB. If you want full bandwidth for your GPU you need to use that slot, which means you need to use the stock Intel CPU heatsink, or a smaller aftermarket one. Not a big deal as there is no overclocking with this MB, and the Gen V Xeons run VERY cool.
Other Thoughts: Bought 64GB of this memory and it works perfectly. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820242215
DDR4 ECC nonbuffered 16GB sticks of RAM are not exactly easy to find at the time of this review. This Kingston Valueram works perfectly, no issues at all.
Pros: Works without a hitch in both my HP8460p and 8440p laptops. These laptops are going for cheap these days, but typically come with 4GB of RAM which is barely enough to be functional on Windows7. This dual-channel kit will not only give you 8GB of RAM, but moving to dual-channel memory gives your laptop quite a speed boost.
Cons: Resale value is basically 25% of what you paid for it, but that goes for any computer component.READ FULL REVIEW
