CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 and Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3


Recommended Posts

Will I need to run this RAM at 1.65v to get 1333?

If so, does the Gigabyte spec of 1.5v mean it's a dead end?


CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 (specs from Newegg)

Voltage: 1.5V – 1.65V


GA-P55A-UD3 (specs from Gigabyte site)

1. 4 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 16 GB of system memory

2. Dual channel memory architecture

3. Support for DDR3 2200/1600/1333/1066/800 MHz memory modules

4. Support for non-ECC memory modules

5. Support for Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory modules

The RAM will run at 1333 MHz. with voltages between 1.5-1.65V. Many Intel systems tend to like 1.5 V where as AMD systems will accept higher RAM voltages without issue. The Gigabyte mobo specs are the industry JEDEC DDR3 memory spec of 1.5 V. That does not mean you can't run the RAM at a higher voltage but Intel does not recommend it.
