broshiggie Posted November 3, 2010 Share Posted November 3, 2010 System boots and seemed to be running fine. However after a while I started getting restarts as if I pulled the power plug. Exchanged the motherboard and same results. Thought it might be the chip (i7-950) and talked to intel to see if i could get one sent back under warranty. They told me the chip is specified to run at 1.575V and the RAM requires 1.65V. Sure enough I check the BIOS and my chip has a voltage setting of 1.575V. Do I need to configure my bios in a special way to use this ram? Can I exchange this ram for a set that uses 1.575V? I asked the intel tech support if there are any chips which support 1.65V and he said no, they are all 1.575V. Why is this RAM marketed as i7 compatible when it's default settings cause crashes?
