Advice on memory voltage


Recommended Posts



I have an Intel DP55WB micro ATX motherboard which I plan to use for a HTPC.


I have purchased Corsair memory: CMD4GX3M2A1600C8.


Before I start the build I would like to check the memory voltage. The above is 1.65 V I believe.


However I have just noticed Intel state:


Using a DIMM with a voltage rating higher than 1.6 V may damage the processor.




Do I need to change the RAM? If so what Corsair model number should I use?


Many thanks

Many thanks for the reply and reassurance.


I built my PC and all went OK, the BIOS reports the Memory voltage at 1.5V. I guess this means it is under-clocked.


Performance is not a key requirement, I choose the memory as I wanted the cooling fins to help keep the memory cool in the confines of a HTPC case.
