The ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution paired-with a Xeon-class "Server" processor.
It's a bit of an older chipset; but, it supports 24GB of RAM.
It does support ECC memory, though with the following caveats:**
6 x DIMM, Max. 24 GB, DDR3
Triple channel memory architecture
Support Intel Extreme Memory Profile (XMP)
*Hyper DIMM (DDR3 1800MHz or above) support is subject to the physical
characteristics of individual CPUs.
**Refer to www.asus.com. Or user manual for the Memory QVL (Qualified
*** ECC memory support requires Intel® Nehalem-WS 1S W3500 series or
Nehalem-EP E5502/E5504/E5506 processors
The main thing would be that the CPU support ECC functions for your
memory. Check the Intel CPU features for your model of processor. For
example, the Intel W3680 is a Westmere (35nm Nehalem) processor that
supports ECC memory.
