for stability reasons.
And certified RAM is guaranteed to work with a specific server/workstation. And like I said if you have a server you do not mess with weird hardware. The certified RAM is thoroughly tested for that specific machine.
That's why you get BSOD's (not often but it does happen) in normal PC's, because you mix a lot of different hardware with different firmwares.
The SAS disk I have in my PC is a HP disk made by Hitachi. HP only puts their custom firmware which was designed to work with a specific machine.
