Default CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 voltage?


My motherboard states the maximum voltage for memory is 1.5v. I have seen varying information that states the RAM in question is rated at 1.5-1.65v or that it is rated at a straight 1.65v and I need to know which, if either, is true. Would also appreciate if anyone can say without a doubt if this ram will work with my board.

The CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 RAM is rated to run at voltages between 1.5-1.65 V. the default DDR3 RAM voltage is 1.5 V. Some mobos require higher RAM voltage to run at higher than the CPU OE rated RAM frequency. The CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 RAM should run @ 9-9-9-24, 2T, 1333 MHz. @ 1.5 V.

If you plan to use this with your AMD 965 BE CPU you can use any voltage between 1.5-1.65 V that allows your PC to run stable. If you plan to run this on an Intel mobo it may desire the RAM to run at 1.5 V.

PLEASE READ THE MEMORY UPGRADE GUIDE at the link below. It WILL answer many questions.

PC Overclocking is like the lottery:

There are many possible combinations but only a few that produce winning results. Nothing is guaranteed when it comes to overclocking. If you are able to tune your hardware to run beyond it's specified performance, then you got something for free.

Don't expect this to always happen.
