Since this topic came up last week I tripped over an article that may be 
useful to many:

Also, earlier I had stated that the S754 and S939 Athlon64 CPUs could 
not use ECC RAM.
I stand corrected.
However few  maybe none) of the motherboard makers provide for this in 
the BIOS.
The assumption is probably that if you want ECC, you want an Opteron board.

At present Opterons and Athlon64 FX CPUs REQUIRE ECC RAM.

With our best regards,
