Hello. I am planning a low-power mini-ITX storage server based around the S1200KP server board. It seems like the perfect solution for my needs, particularly in that I could use the inexpensive Celeron G540 as CPU. ECC memory is a requirement for this server. According the Product Brief for the G540 (http://download.intel.com/embedded/processor/prodbrief/325980.pdf http://download.intel.com/embedded/processor/prodbrief/325980.pdf), it supports ECC memory. So I naturally assumed this would not be an issue, but recently someone pointed out to me that if you search the ARK using ECC support as a filter, the G540 is eliminated from the results.
Is it possible to receive some clarification on this issue? Thank you very much!
Yes the processor is supported. See http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s1200kp/sb/CS-032725.htm Tested processor list. The type of memory supported by the processor is dependent on the PCH SKU in the target platform. So, on S1200KP, yes ECC is supported.
