BonzaiDuck Posted August 19, 2008 Share Posted August 19, 2008 I've had enough experience -- with Corsair (DDR), Crucial (DDR2) and those G.SKILL RAMs -- to be very careful with the voltage settings. This is especially important if there is a known bias and difference between "set" voltage and "monitored/reported" voltage. On my Striker Extreme (680i) motherboard, the reported RAM voltage is about 0.05V higher than "set," and some people argue that even the reported value is understated by as much as another 0.05V (but they can't confirm, and they don't really "know.") I've updated my Striker Extreme to a BIOS version posted early this month (Aug 2008) -- to resolve a problem with temperature monitors for Penryn processors, and even the proper recognition of the modules. ABOUT MY QUESTION: I bought the TWIN2X4096-6400C4DHX modules because they were recommended by Corsair for this motherboard, and the latency settings of 4-4-4-12 @ [DDR=] 800 offer the sort of performance I want and need. When Corsair says that the modules "were tested @ DDR2-800, 4-4-4-12 and 2.1V," does this mean that 2.1V is the warranty maximum allowable voltage, or is the warranty maximum higher than that? My modules will arrive this afternoon, and I'm trying to get a clear idea what the rules and limits are. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
