NeoLojik Posted September 5, 2008 Share Posted September 5, 2008 Hey all, Yesterday I built a new machine based around the new Intel DG45ID motherboard, which uses the G45 express chipset, and ran into a small issue with the Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400 DDR2 RAM I bought to go with it. The problem seems to be that the modules are designed to run at 1.9v, as seen by both the label on the modules themselves and also on the product sheet (http://corsairmemory.com/products/go.aspx?pn=TWIN2X2048-6400) however the SPD has been programmed to run them at 1.8v. As the motherboard is an Intel one, and the tweakability in the BIOS is limited to timings only, I had to put them in another machine and put 2 of my TWIN2X2048-6400C4's into the DG45ID motherboard. These happily run at 1.8v at 5-5-5-18 timings. Everything is running fine now, whereas before memtest would either cause the machine to reboot, or display errors straight away. With the memory in my other machine memtest looped for 12 hours straight with no errors. I checked the SPD's using CPU-Z and it shows that the settings for 400MHz do indeed state 1.8v instead of 1.9v which all the marketing info says they need. Just thought you might like to know. I'd be interested to know if it's possible for an end-user to update the SPD, and if so, if there's an update available to correct this.
