What do you think of my ECC-based system ?


Castor Nageur

Hi all,

I want to build an ECC based system for a reasonnable price avoiding
to use expensive and hard to find boards like Tyan or Supermicro so
here are my choices:

Motherboard: Asus M4A89TD PRO/USB3
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition (3300Mhz -
ECC Memory: KVR1333D3E9S/4GEC ou KVR1333D3E9S/4GHB
PSU: Seasonic X750 (80+ Gold)
Case: Cooler Master HAF 922 + Lian-Li EX-H34 rack for hot-
plugging SATA3 HDD

I checked the motherboard manual which shows some BIOS pages for
configuring the ECC memory so I suppose ECC is correctly handled.
The AMD Phenom II X6 1100T is quite cheap compared to the
performance. I chose AMD because it handles the ECC memory much better
than Intel (you need a Xeon to have ECC handled correctly on Intel

I want to install a rack where I will plug 4 HDD.
I plan to install 1 or 2 graphic cards so I chose a powerful PSU.

The case has some excellent reviews on NewEgg and is quite cheap.

Do you see anything which could go wrong with this system (I did not
order the components yet) ?

Thanks in advance for your help.
