Question for Ram Guy


Recommended Posts

I was suffering from 5 to 10 bug checks(BSOD) every day on my new system, all the dump files pointed to the memory so i checked these forums and for my particular memory (TW3X4G1333C9A) you were suggesting increasing the voltage from 1.5v to 1.6v i did this and it has been fine for a month.


My question is - Why did this resolve the problem, will it void the warranty and will it decrese its life.


My brother liked my system so much that he copied the build but has had no problems at all.

IIRC they're warrantied up to 1.8v, so it's not a warranty issue.


There's multiple things to consider. Could be the slot liking more voltage, could be the BIOS is undervolting the memory, etc. Either way, there's multiple ICs used in any memory series, so they wouldn't necessarily all have the same resistive load, and don't forget things can change within the same run of silicon. OTOH they're all made within a certain spec.
