I chose AMD Ryzen 5 4600 CPU for my Home NAS because of two features: ECC memory support and larger L1 cache CPU per core.

Is 4600g support ECC for real? ECC is not supported (official page). ECC modules may work in standart mode as U-dimms without problems but in that case ECC features are off. Do you enable ECC and it work in your system? What motherboard you using in your PC?
