Question about IBM Netfinity 3500 M20 8657 Server
Will non ecc ram work in this server?
In my experience working with many servers, Non-ECC memory will not work on a machine that requires ECC memory. It is possible in some servers to disable the ECC mode in the system BIOS to allow non-ECC memory to work, but you will often end up with performence problems later on.
Hope this information helps, let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

you will need to select your motherboard from a dropdown list
also on the left will be types of ram ddr2 ddr3...... you will need to select which type you have
If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.
NON-ECC/Non-parity - Most desktop and laptop computers take NON-ECC or Non-parity memory.
ECC/Parity - ECC or parity modules look for errors in data and are most often found in servers and other mission-critical applications used by large networks and businesses.
Unbuffered - Most PCs and workstations use unbuffered memory which is faster than registered memory.
hope this helps you
