Looks like you can use either regular DDR3 or ECC, but not registered DIMMs. ('Buffered' is just the old term for 'registered', BTW.)

It appears you'd have to have a 5500-series Xeon in order to use registered memory.

Sorry to break it to you , but the board you picked out only supports 5xxx series processors , it does not support 3xxx series processors since they do not have sufficient QPI links.
