Use ECC. No real reason not to. Good price on that one. Still hard not to get the X10SL7-F if you do storage.

The reason I dont want to use ECC is I already have 32Gb of non ECC memory that I wanted to re-purpose for this project.

Also this calls for UDIMM ECC which is very expensive and looks like a lot harder to find than RDIMM ECC.

That motherboard is nice but I dont plan on doing any local storage just a ESXI host for the cluster (lol cluster of 1 to start with).
