Dell Precision T1700 - 32GB non-ECC memory????

Does anyone know if I can use 32 gb (4x8GB) of non-ECC ram in a Precision T1700 tower?  The spec sheet says ECC ram to is required to get 32 gb but I was thinking of getting 2x8gb now and another 2x8gb later.

Any thoughts on whether this specific type of memory may be compatible with the T1700?  It seems like a good price for DDR3 ECC memory:

Theok65,

Unfortunately, the Hynix 16GB 2x8GB 2RX4 PC3-12800R DDR3-1600MHZ ECC Server REG SERVER MEMORY will not work in your computer

How about this set?:

It looks to be this memory with heat spreaders:

AND, what part of the specifications for RAM should I be looking at to determine compatibility?

Thanks in advance,

Theo

Don't count on buying by photograph -- what you need to do is ask whether the seller will guarantee compatibility.  If they won't, be sure you understand the charges that might be involved in a return.

If you want a guarantee, there are vendors like Crucial and Kingston that will provide that when you buy using their memory configurator.
