Let's have at it folks... I myself know and believe that Non-ECC Ram is better for audio applications which in my mind is not a server based operation.... Server based systems need the ECC Ram as they deal with a hell of a lot more data pull..correct? Audio based applications are standalone machines virtually in a computer, they do not distribute, nor monitor file sharing and connectivity, they do not set rules and policies, they do not administor users and groups..etc etc blah blah blah..I think you get my point.. So I would therefore classify an audio machine as(Quote from Asus website here): "a regular system application" I do not see the need for the heavy cycle redundancy for memory...it only adds processing time which slows latency way down... same with DDR vs RDR...for music applications you want the lowest latency possible...thus why we go with CAS2...quick and efficient.. So I end it there with the rambling and babbling but I need to know what you all think...what's your opinion(not that I'll pay attention to it..but..
