    Does Crosshair VIII Dark Hero support ECC unbuffered memory or not (with 5950X)?

    Hello!

    On the specs page for ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero:
    https://rog.asus.com/motherboards/ro...ero-model/spec

    I cannot see ECC memory support, all freqs are listed without the ECC tag.
    Did anyone test ECC unbuffered memory on Crosshair VIII Dark Hero (with 5950X)?

    Although it doesn't show ECC for any of the listed speeds, a bit further down it does say "ECC Memory (ECC mode) support varies by CPU".

    I have some ECC UDIMMs in this motherboard with a 5950X. I confirmed that ECC is both enabled and working by overclocking the RAM to the point that MemTest86 and Windows both report corrected errors.
