Putting in ram with varying voltages?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Thinking of adding another set of ram to my A DATA 4gb ddr3 1600. They're 1.65v (9-9-9-24) ram. If I add g skill ripjaws ddr3 1600 (9-9-9-24) 1.5 v ram what would happen if this set is at 1.5v and the other is at 1.65v?

I think that the 1.65 would lower itself to 1.5

Set 1.6v in your bios, they should do fine.

You might be fine with stock timings on the 1.65v, should be fine actually.

Both will handle 1.65v just fine, so you can just set them to 1.65v to be safe. My Ripjaws had seen up to 1.75v for stability runs without a problem, and this is on my i5.

Well this bios is really weird and only lets me set in increments of .2. So for example I can choose, 1.6v, 1.62v, 1.64v. So it could get tricky. If I leave the voltage on auto will both just default to 1.65v? Which I'm fine with.

Pretty sure that they should both default to 1.5

Just set them to 1.64v or 1.66v then. Overvolting your RAM by that little tiny bit (the new GSkills) won't hurt them any in the slightest.

Set it to 1.62v and see how it goes.
