Hey all,

 

I want to bye some Corsair RAM for my new system. I have two questions.

 

-Why is it that DDR XMS2 modules have a voltage off 1.9 volt and not the standard jedec 1.8 volt? Corsair Value Select memory have a 1.8 volt standard setting why XMS modules? Makes no sens to me.

 

-There are no spec sheet of the TWIN2X4096-6400C5C modules? whats the diferens whit TWIN2X4096-6400C5 modules? again 1.9 volt and not 1.8?

 

I hope the RAM guy or peaple can read my poor English,:(: thanks.:laughing:

TWIN2X4096-6400C5C is a variation of the TWIN2X4096-6400C5 and they are both the same basic module the only difference being the heat spreader and either set can be made with 1.8 or 1.9 Volts but most are now 1.8 Volts.

Wired you don´t have to offend me.

 

Its clear now the difference being the heat spreader.

 

I want to run a cool and silent sytem.

 

Last question.

 

1.9 volts generate more heat than 1.8 volts. XMS2 with 1.9 volts is essensual overclockt memory by default than. Correct:confused:

 

Tnx for the replies.

It's not an insult, just a statement. As I stated, some XMS2 run at 1.8, others at 1.9, others at 2.1, others at 2.2. If you want to run it at a lower voltage go ahead and try it and see if it's stable, but the tested / rated voltage is what is on the label.
