    Century Japan started selling a [relatively] affordable 16 GB DDR3-1600 MHz (PC3-12800) ECC Registered DIMM. The module runs at 1600 MHz with timings of 11-11-11, and has been tested on EVGA SR-X platform to achieve 192 GB (12 x 16 GB), scraping the address-space limits of Windows 7 64-bit client operating systems. The 240-pin RDIMM uses 36 Hynix-made DRAM chips. In Japan, Century's new 16 GB RDIMM is priced at 25,000 JPY (US $314) a pop. For reference, DDR3-1066 MHz 16 GB RDIMMs are priced around $300.

    Woah, what? I must have been out of the loop because I thought 8GB modules were still selling for 300$.

    Yep, 8GB modules are now only about 10-20% more expensive than 2x4GB kits.

    This are for boards with server chipsets coz i notice it's written ECC and ECC doesn't work on most performance/mainstream chipset or am i wrong? most mainstream/performance chipset mostly/only use Non-ECC memory is this correct?

    That is correct, although AMD boards/CPU's support ECC on desktop boards. The case with Intel is that you need a Xeon to have ECC RAM, AFAIK.

    I might not be well informed about the subject, but $314 seems too steep for me.

    If you really need this level of capacity/speed, I suppose they're a value. Not a lot of other options available.

    And if some one is buying 1066 at $300, stop, and go grab some Kingston 1333 for under $200/stick. Now that is a value!

    well you've highlighted the issue - willingness to pay. it's not worth it to you (or even me at the moment) but it is a good price for such a product.

    And micro servers where there's only one DIMM slot.
