    LGA 1700 Alder Lake "Servers"

    Thanks for the update. Would you mind providing a direct link to exactly what you bought? I'm seeing a lot of "hynix HMCG88MEBEA" offerings but many places leave off the last 4 numbers of the model #.

    Has anyone on the forum tested the ASUS w680 MB with the Crucial sticks yet? At least with the Hynix sticks, people are seeing single bit ECC reported...vs. none with non-ECC sticks. The SM store has the Hynix sticks in stock as well.

    So, good news, my Asus w680-ACE IPMI just got delivered by FedEx. Bad News - sounds like the ECC story line drama is still going. The Innodisk sticks aren't available, so I may just risk it and grab the Hynix and hope for the best. Not sure what other alternative there is.

    So we're concluding that the SM Hynix ECC RAM doesn't work with the ASUS W680-ACE if you need ECC? Is that a fair assessment?

    Where are the DDR5 ECC UDIMMs?

    Scale or Core? I'm planning Scale myself - same MB and RAM.

    Thanks for the report! How would you say the initial build quality of the ASUS board looks compared to the SM? And I assume the 13700K worked out of the box - no BIOS update or other pre-reqs? Good to hear - I have the same CPU.

    OK - peer pressure won out. :) I just ordered one from Provantage as well. 5 left in stock now. If you guys with the Hynix ECC RAM can pls report back compatibility with the ASUS MB ASARP, would be appreciated, as I can't find anyone who stocks the 32GB ECC Innodisk sticks... and the 16GB...

    Can I ask where you ordered from?

    Strange I can't even order today on B&H - they removed the option. B&H chat said they expect stock on Feb 9th. I guess the upside is I can see if the Hynix SM ECC UDIMMs work on the W680-ACE before ordering.

    Yea, I'm on the fence of whether I should place an order on B&H now or wait for the In Stock status to change, or become available at another reputable reseller.

    I'm seeing the ASUS W680-ACE board listed as in stock at a few non-authorized online resellers including Provantage. Guessing they're all affiliated as they are reporting the exact same number in stock across several websites. Holding out for something more legit.

    As I've yet to see an Asus W680-Ace for sale anywhere, I highly doubt anyone here has one to test on.

    LGA 1700 Alder Lake "Servers"

    I'm searching daily, and yes, it seems most retailers are listing the non-IPMI at a higher price than the IPMI. Not sure why, or if that price will hold.

    FYI: Looks like LDLC in Europe has the ASUS W680 board in stock. https://www.ldlc.com/en/product/PB00534677.html

    One of the reasons I'm trying to wait for the ASUS.

    I picked up my 13700k for $350 USD + tax on Black Friday from Microcenter.

    LGA 1700 Alder Lake "Servers"

    Agree, they should work. I just get nervous ordering $400 worth of RAM that's not on their QVL and is not returnable. I think many have seen thermal throttling, yes, esp during benchmark testing. I'm considering an AIO, same usage as you... ZFS with some Dockers/VMs, possibly using TrueNAS...

    LGA 1700 Alder Lake "Servers"

    Agree. RDIMM won't work in a UDIMM-only MB. Best bet I can find at the moment is the UDIMM ECC sticks that people are using with the x13sae-f, although those are Hynix, not Samsung. But not on the Asus QVL list either...

    There's several online retailers all suggesting ETA of the last week of December: That LDLC link was updated yesterday to show 12/26 B&H Photo is showing 7-14 days compsource.com is showing ETA of 12/29 My bigger question is where to buy the only 32 GB ECC RAM that's on their CVL? innodisk...

    FYI - Looks like the Asus w680-ACE IPMI board should be coming in stock the last week of December.
