TR3X6G1600C8D Voltage on EVGA X58 SLI


Recommended Posts

OK...so I have a new bios that allows the memory to run at 1600 MHZ...8-8-8-24-59-2T. My question is about the voltage. In the bios, the choices are 1.60, 1.625, 1.65, 1.675 and 1.7. After I flashed the bios, the bios was set for 1.65 but ran the voltage into the memory at 1.7, so I backed down until I got it under the 1.65 as specified by Corsair. At 1.60, my motherboard and EVGA E-Leet specify that the memory is running at 1.62-1.63 max. I know the memory, at 1600 mhz is required to run at 1.65. Is this going to be an issue, long term. Currently I ran Memtest 2.11 for 4 runs with NO errors...just want to make sure I don't mess the memory up by undervolting. If I set the bios to 1.625 I get 1.67, so then it would be too high.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks

You are fine at 1.62 - 1.63 (Actual) and 1.60 (BIOS).
