I had 2 days of labor lost when compiling and getting errors. I finally ran memtest and found that one of my 6 year old stick of GSKILL ram had errors(by the way... they never replied to the RMA lifetime warranty request).
I'm building a new desktop system(non gaming...mainly for dev and web hosting).
I really want to get ECC ram this time. But I also want to get the intel i5-7500T because it's low wattage, but it does not support ECC. AMD does offer ECC, but they run hotter/has higher wattage than I would like.
I don't see myself rebooting and running memtest as a routine to be proactive. I can't use registered ram because most desktop motherboards do not support registered/buffer ram.
Is there a ECC alternative for real time RAM error handling/checking?
