Matt Schnarr Posted March 24, 2009 Share Posted March 24, 2009 I understand this ram is rated for firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, but I have been unable to acheive stability at these settings. a) All settings to Auto on M4A78T-E, ram set to 1066, vdimm reads 1.63, system is stable. b) All settings to Auto on M4A78T-E, ram set to 1333, vdimm reads 1.92, system is stable. But these voltages seem high (especially 1.92). c) System is stable at 1066 with a minimum manual vdimm of 1.63 (any less crashes at windows boot) d) System is stable at 1333 with a minimum manual vdimm of 1.8 (any less crashes within a couple minutes of prime95) A couple of points here. The auto voltage settings on the Asus are alarming. That being said are my expectations of vdimm too low for these sticks? Are the sticks defective? I have read elsewhere in the forum that this ram is covered by the warranty up to 2.0v, but are voltages this high potentially damaging to the motherboard and cpu? Intel says no vdimm over 1.5 for core-i7. Does such a restriction exist for am3? Heat has not been an issue, and even at 1.8 the sticks do not feel more than slightly warm. Thanks for any help.
