Hi peeps. I have this mobo:
- X58A-UD3R (Socket 1366) BIOS FH

And i have this CPU and RAM that i take out of my Mac Pro 5.1 when i upgraded it.
- Intel® Xeon® Processor X5650
12M Cache, 2.66 GHz
- Hynix 8GB 2RX4 PC3 - 10600R DDR3-1333MHz Reg-DIMM ECC Server Memory

I’ve upgraded CPU in X58A and it works fine.
So my question is, can i install this ram also in this mobo? I have two sticks spare.

Now in my mobo i have 12 gb DDR3 1066MHz (3x4gb)

No, I don't think so. Your motherboard may not work with ECC memory like what you have.
