THXEngineer8 Posted August 28, 2009 Share Posted August 28, 2009 Hi, I've just intalled 6 Gb of CMG6GX3M3A1866C7 into a new build computer using an ASUS P6T7 WS motherboard and an Intel i7-975 CPU. All settings are "stock", as I have not yet started to overclock. In the motherboard's BIOS, when I go to set the DIMM speed to "X.M.P." profile, the "DRAM Bus Voltage" is automatically set to 1.66 Volts by the X.M.P. profile. Everyone knows that setting this voltage higher than 1.65 volts will cause the end of the universe as we know it! :laughing: Seriously, though, will having this voltage higher than 1.65 volts harm my CPU? According to Intel, it will. Also, the CMG6GX3M3A1866C7 is advertised and states in it's specs that it can achieve these speeds at 1.65 volts. Why would the X.M.P. profile be setting this voltage to 1.66 volts? Should I enter all of the other X.M.P. specs manually in the BIOS and set the DRAM voltage manually to 1.65 volts? Also, is it correct that when I do start to overclock, the X.M.P. profile will not function and that I'll have to enter these values manually? Thanks for your assistance.
