I am curious if some can post which motherboards can use this memory. It must have come out of an HP PC since it has an HP sticker.

Memory is made by Micron-HP, ecc, registered, buffered, double sided, ddr, PC3200, 4 one gb sticks.

I have an Intel server board but made a mistake thinking it would work in that.

MT18VDDF12872G-40BD3 PC3200R

Not sure what to do with it, I dont have anything I can put it into.

It's probably 10 years old, and no longer relevant. It's 400 MHz error-correcting memory with registers on the stick.

I like old things which can still work good enough.:p

It will probably work in most DDR motherboards (EDIT: well, maybe not) (that have the same no. of pins, like not desktop memory in a laptop), but probably not all of them (you'd need to look at the motherboard specs to find out probably). DDR is old though, replaced by DDR2 and now DDR3, so unless you have some old boxes (like 2004 or older usually) lying around somewhere, it probably won't have any use to you.

No, the motherboard would need to support ECC Registered memory. I *think* that implies a 2004 high-end server motherboard.

And I can run circles around that system with a four-year-old off-lease computer I can buy for $159.

Personally, if I had ECC RAM and not a ECC motherboard, I'd sell the memory. It should still be worth something to someone who has a compatible moterboard.
