Voltage Question with Dominator PC2-8500 x 4 1Gb


Recommended Posts

Hi peeps.... great site by the way....

Got 2x1Gb dominator PC2-8500 1066mhz running at the moment... all ok (no overclock)2.20V

My other pair are 2.10v ver 1.6...

to get all 4 running in my system should i leave the volts as they are... or adjust them all the same volts (2.10v/2.20v) ??

& adjust in the bios to 667... 800... Asus mobo-P5K-E wifi ??

Seems silly to have 2x1Gb in my system & the same sat in the packing doing nothing...

Many thanks for any pointers.... Hixx

With 4 modules I would suggest setting the memory frequency at DDR667 and set the memory Voltage to 2.1 Volts and set the NB/MCH/SPP Voltage to +.2 Volts as well and test the system with http://www.memtest.org. In addition, with some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.
