Possible problem with Ram?


Recommended Posts



I recently bought Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400, 2gb of 800mhz ram.


The problem is when I try running at stock 800mhz, 5-5-5-12, 1.9v, I get a BSOD (blue screen) right when the system boots to XP. However, when I raised the voltage to 2.0 things seem to be stable.


My question is that I just want to make sure that I am not voiding my warranty or anything by raising the voltage past what it is rated at since I can't get the ram to work at 1.9v.


Thanks for your help.



I have a 680i motherboard and was previously using some kingston ram, which worked fine for months and months with the system going 24/7 so I know it's not a motherboard issue, and I have not changed ANY other system components except the Ram, so its not another component causing the BSOD.
