    I see there are bunch of listings on ebay for the 16GB ECC Registered SODIMM modules (SORDIMM).
    After doing some searching I wasn't able to find even one motherboard which would accept such module.
    Does anybody know any product which would work with it?

    Regards

    I believe this motherboard -> Supermicro | Products | Motherboards | Xeon® Boards | X9SPV-M4

    I believe some SM mini-itx server/workstation are .

    I look forward to finding more boards that work with this :) $160 for 64gb is hard to pass up!!!

    In the specs/manual it says:
    Two (2) SO-DIMM slots support up to 16 GB of DDR3/L, unbuffered, 1600/1333 MHz, ECC SO-DIMM memory
    DIMM Sizes 8GB, 4GB, 2GB

    It doesn't support 16GB single Registered SO-DIMM.

    not many SODIMM ECC...

    You need to find ITX with an embedded Xeon OR socketed with support for a xeon.

    It seems the same case as with the motherboard above:
    - in DIMM sizes section only 2,4 and 8GB are listed.
    - on the schematics of the board it says "Always populate DIMMx2 first, UNB ECC DDR3 SODIMM REQURED"
    UNB = Unbuffered
    I tried to lookup the memory from the tested memory section - all of the items specified in there seem to be Unbuffered.
    I'm pretty sure you are right that it should be some weird beast with embedded CPU, just want to find one :)

    they say unbuffered...

    but on boards like this:
    ASRock > B75TM-ITX
    that are full CPU sockets you drop in a Xeon and the chip has the mem controller and determines what ram it can use.

    I saw those while searching yesterday. I do admit, if they were cheap I may end up getting some.

    The reviews on amazon make them appear hit or miss as far as working or not... they are so simple you'd think they could charge $10 and use better components...

    If anyone finds a "higher end" one I'd give it a shot :)

    You have to remember those pcb extensions add extra length for the electrical signals to travel on. This can cause sync issues or interference. I wouldn't bother on a production system, too much integrity at compromise.

    you are correct, I just look the manual and say unbuff ...

    looking further on 2012 press release, they make SORDIMM for embedded system: RAID card, Network appliance and others...
