I have a few gigabytes of RAM (Crucial make - ECC registered) lying
around (recovered from my retired PCs) and I was thinking if I could
use some sort of RAM disk (hardware based like a PCI card etc).
I cannot use it in my current motherboards because they require
unbuffered non-ECC RAM.
It may be just a stupid idea but I would like to experiment with
having swap file on such RAM disk (and if there is a battery backup,
even the OS can live there).
I saw one such product from Gigabyte (iRAM) but it does not support
ECC RAM. Tried googling, most of the results were about people
complaining about iRAM not supporting ECC RAM :)
Does anybody know of such a product?
