    are these in aus yet? I was looking at centercom and couldnt find one.

    I need to build a ...build server, so this + 128gb + pci4 ssd will be fantastic. no OC or gpu needed

    I am actually pleasantly surprised at the price. There seems to be very little Australia tax on that and only really the 10% GST.

    Does Threadripper officially support ECC memory? Typically this type of feature is reserved for both Intel's and AMD's server processors and on AMD's website they say that Threadripper takes EEC RAM, however, when I say "support' I mean that the ECC functions are active and not just "accept and run ECC RAM in normal mode without the ECC functions being active".

    Yes. ECC functionality works. It even works on most Ryzen boards nowaday. Folk have been using ECC ram for overclocking... much easier to detect when they have gone too far.

    Edit: sorry for the late edit - just to be more specific - Ryzen, Threadripper and EPYC all support ECC (don't believe the APU's have ECC capability). Its up to the motherboard to expose the relevant functionality to the OS via the bios.
