No, you should. There is absolutely no evidence showing that 1.65v will ruin the IMC on sandy bridge. Even intel has stated that 1.65v will not harm the IMC.

http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showpost.php?p=18190523&postcount=103

There is a lot more out there saying 1.65 is perfectly fine, sure 1.5 is ideal but 1.65 is fine.

It still does, not a huge difference though. This link should help:

well I guess I'll end up going with this kit
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231455

for the money it looks like the best deal, and I feel like 1866 is a happy medium between 2133 and 1600mhz RAM.

thanks for the input everyone, I hope this stuff works great!

higher speeds/tight timings - Benching

lower speeds/looser timings - everyday usage.

Read this and this



Hope that helps

You'll be happy with that kit. Plus you get a free 4GB USB drive from Newegg! biggrin.gif

If your not much of a bencher then these would be perfect for everday usage:
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600 CL9 $65

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600 CL8 $80

Difference between the two above are, the blue ones are slighly tighter and have a little better overclocking capability than the red ones. Both are rated 1.5v and are higly recommended, I would go for the red ones, it's standard timings at 9-9-9-24 is absolutly fine for everday usage.


However, there are others that are more preferred by bencher's, this is one that is very appealing to me. Rated at 1.5v and running tight timings and a pretty decent speed, I can see overclocked to around 2133mhz+ with a small voltage bump and maybe loosening the timings to maybe CL7. However, this is only available in 4GB with those timings and voltage:

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 1600 CL6 $70

The 8GB Black Ripjaws 1600mhz with 1.6v and are CL7, but come at a hefty price of $125which aint worth it at all.



Good Luck biggrin.gif

Also read this and then you will understand why I chose the 1600mhz over the 1866mhz: http://www.anandtech.com/show/4503/sandy-bridge-memory-scaling-choosing-the-best-ddr3

So is it verified that 1.6v is harmless to the cpu? I'd like to see some documentation on that if it all possible thanks.
