Intel D975XBX2 and voltage recommendations- 1.8, 1.9 2.1?


Recommended Posts

Normally living in the corporate world of standard purchased computers, I'm piecing together a machine for a special application with requirements higher than our standard "corporate" machine.


I purchased the D975XBX2 Intel board and a Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor. The memory ordered was TWIN2X2048-6400C4.


My question is memory voltage related-- the Intel site says the board supports 1.8V and 1.9V 800MHZ DDR2 6400. Maximum of 8GB.


The Corsair configurator identifies a lot of options, including what I ordered (not realizing the voltage) including 1.8V - 2.1V and the board supports a maximum of 32GB. Wrong, so I'm also wondering about the memory it recommended.




My guess is that I really should have ordered WIN2X2048-6400C4DHX. The TWIN2X2048-6400C4 hasn't arrived yet.


So, what's the deal, really? Is it as simple as the 2.1V shouldn't have been listed for my board, or are there some details I'm missing?


I've built many computers over the years, but have never run into the situation where the board didn't support the voltage that was recommended.


Thanks for any input/correction you can provide me.

I just wanted to share that I run these modules (TWIN2X2048-6400C4) on my Intel DG33TL which only supports 1.8v @ 1.8v 5-5-5-18... I just can't go 4-4-4-12 due to the voltage restriction on the motherboard... However, they work great at these settings... :D:
