Will this RAM work?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Will it work on a 955 BE? It is 1.65v
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMP4GX3M2A1600C9

My friend Bought a i7 2600k and got that RAM but did not know you could hurt your CPU with 1.65v on sand bridge. I have a set of G. Skill 1.5v on my AMD build that I will trade him if 1.65v will work with my 955.

or can he just under volt the 1.65 corsair on his sandy bridge

Thanks very much

Yes, make sure you get some cash for that trade.... given that both are same rated specs.

Yes you should be fine. Both RAM should work in both boards

Well what do you guys think..

Should I just keep my RAM (1.5) and tell him his 1.65 in hi z68 will be okay? Or should he under clock or what would be the best option?

Or will his 2600k be okay with a 1.65v.

1.65V works perfectly with the 955.
In fact, 1.65V works perfectly also with Sandy Bridge/LGA1155. Just keep the VCCIO (or whatever voltage it was) within .5V of the memory voltage. If he is absolutely worried about it, he could try undervolting to 1.5-1.55V.
