Different types of TWIN2X4096-6400C5?

If I have a kit specified for 1.8V and I buy an additional kit that is rated 1,9V, can I have one of the kits replaced by Corsair so that both kits run with the same voltage? I am confused that the voltages differ since both kits have the same name and they were bought only three weeks apart.

These are different batches.

 

You are NOT running the kits (2 Modules) at actual speed. The only memory Corsair supports in a four DRAM slot population is their Quad kits. This does not mean two dual kits or even worse two dual kits of different versions or different manufacturers will not work together, just that you have no recourse to RMA Corsair if they do not work together. If there are problems with the Corsair DRAM modules, they are still supported via lifetime warranty, but that is for physical defects and errors in a two stick kit mode. Matched Quad sets are highly binned modules for a four slot population. The Dual sets are tested as a kit, not a Quad and warranted as a dual kit, not a Quad setup. You need to Memtest them as Kits (2 modules, not as a four DRAM slot population). If they fail as a kit or singly, then you have RMA. Keep in mind that there is no support for mixing and matching different versions of DRAM either since different version are of different fabrications and/or manufacturers. They might work, they might not work, but you have no support if they do not work. Thus you are advised to buy all the DRAM at the same time and in this way be more assured of getting the same versions. It is advised that if you buy online, you are sure to specify same versions of the modules.

 

You are advised to drop the bandwidth to 667Mhz and raise the NB Voltage +.1v (for a X38/X48 board) and +.2v for all other chipsets. Set the memory voltage to 1.9v and the timings for 5-5-5-15 2T.
