    I have GA-X38-DS5 and according to Gigabyte website
    http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products...erboard&ProductID=2672&ProductName=GA-X38-DS5
    this motherboard supports ECC DDR2 DRAMs. I tried to use Kingston
    KVR800D2E5K2/4G DDR2-800 2 x 2 GB ECC DRAMs, see
    http://www.valueram.com/datasheets/KVR800D2E5K2_4G.pdf

    Unfortunately I have not dicovered how to enable the ECC mode.

    GA-8I955X Pro had an option in Advanced BIOS Features called "DRAM Data
    Integrity Mode", but GA-X38-DS5 has nothing. And since these strings are not
    present even in the BIOS strings section (_EN_CODE.BIN) they are not here at
    all.

    Everest shows that no ECC, just in SPD only.

    Does anybody know if this motherboard really suports ECC DRAMs?

    Regards,

    Petr
