Folks,
There is only one ECC Memory listed on the SR-3 Dark support list.
Kingston KSM26RD8/16HAI
 
The memory is relatively slow and appears to be discontinued.
The Kingston website indicates it has been replaced by KSM26RD8/16MEI
 
Is it safe to assume that the new Kingston part number works with the SR-3 Dark?
Are there other ECC Memory options, hopefully with a bit better specs, that are known to work with this motherboard?
 
Thanks!
-Arnold

    Registered ECC memory is normally only offered at speeds within Intel spec's, so no XMP support.
     
    Fastest I've seen is the Crucial 3200MHz (Kingston also have some). but EVGA would need to check & certify them for use on the board.

    3200MHz more then enough speed. 
    Looks like we will see several nice computers with EVGA SR-3 Dark motherboard and 6x16GB RAM.

    To reopen this topic...
    I have an SR-3 Dark Motherboard ready to be be built out.
    I just check the supported memory list for SR-3 and I do not see any "qualified" ECC RDIMM memory listed other than a now obsolete Kingston part KSM26RD8/16HAI
     
    I'm currently contemplating using either Kingston KSM32RD4/32MEI as xuqui99 suggested which is being phased out and replaced by Kingston KSM32RD4/32HDR.
     
    Does anyone know if either of these two Kingston parts will work properly with my SR-3 Dark?
    If not, can someone who's successfully built out an SR-3 Dark with ECC memory chime in with what memories they have successfully used?
     
    Thanks!

    Your other option is to check with the RAM Mfg .... see if they tested any of their RAM with this MB
     
    maybe another member of the Forums can answer your question

    You can overclock registered ECC memory as I did it with the SR-2 back in the day. I run into a thermal wall (temps are too high for me as I lack a chiller) with my 3175X, so I haven't played with the memory OCing.

    Does the SR-3 have PCI-E bifurcation support? My current boiard does not and I want to know if the SR-3 is worth the jump.

    Which board do you have now ? I have F3D and F3 custom bioses for C621 Aorus Xtreme they sent me with bifurcation option for the 2 x16 slots.  If you PM me I can send you link to them.  I really have no idea why they don't include it by default on a workstation board.

    Soueriously, considering that a lot desktop boards have it out of the box! 
    I'm using the Gigabyte C621-AORUS-XTREME..
    https://www.gigabyte.com/...AORUS-XTREME-rev-10#kf
    I'm actually on the F3D bios and have been since release from 2019. I went through the trouble of sourcing a Highpoint SSD7103 during this crazy CV part price time just to have PCI-E bifurcation support for m.2 drives.
