Worried about RAM choice, 1.6v+ causing SB degredation. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Hmmm, I wouldn't think RAM voltage would affect the CPU in anyway. Though if true, I would like to see some reading material about it. I just picked up a 2600k and want to use my current ddr3 ram, which runs at 1.9v

Iv been reading the posts about degradation on the CPU's but too be on the safe side rather get RAM at 1.5v or lower but as pointed out by E-Peen the platform has not been out long enough to see long term effects.

People have been reporting that they need to constantly up VID/Vcore on their CPU to keep them stable at the same OC they were previously running perfectly for a few months. So who knows really.

1.9v is quite a crap load though so i would avoid those on your SB build, better safe than sorry.

Well dang, Looks like the CPU is going to be sitting a while until I can get the funds for a mobo and new ram.
