    I have looked through the Supported Memory Spec Sheets of a lot of TRX40 MB and none of them seem to support ECC Ram in all 8 Slots. They only support 4 slots with a maximum of 16GB per dim. If you go Non ECC then you can populate all 8 with 32GB dims.

    That is just a Qualified Vendors List (QVL) for the TRX40 AORUS XTREME.
    This doesn't mean that memory which is not listed doesn't work (The memory controller is in the threadripper, not in the vendors motherboard).

    I opted for 256GB of non-ECC in my 3960x build. So far, so good. I’ll let you guys know if any of my bits get scrambled by cosmic rays or a transient cloud of Radon or something.

    Jeff Please could you post which components you chose for your build. I am seriously considering making the leap to TR3.

    3970x @ 4.1 GHz all-core turbo runs about 17,900 CB20. Not terrible.

    Hey DJ,

    Dose your GC-TITAN RIDGE TB3 card work good with your setup? I was researching on Gigabyte's site and they list the TRX40 Designare has the motherboard compatible with the Titan Ridge TB3 card.

    thanks for any info !!

    Richard
