Registered ECC - unofficial support? Will it damage my system?

Gigabyte 990FX-UD3 rev 4.1 motherboard,   9590FX CPU

This WS build needs ECC. I have some RECC (the 'R' = registered). I want to try installing it. Will this start a fire or kill my board? The documentation form Gigabyte and AMD are unspoken in specifically mentioning registered memory.

 

One would therefore assume that the RAM will have 3 expected behaviours:

1. Not post

2. Post, and function as ECC, with extra latency due to the registration buffer (physically on the ram module) consuming extra clock cycles

3. Kill my hopes and dreams.

 

Thank you for your time!
