Can upping the Dram voltage blow the vrms?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've got an MSI 870-G45 ATX AM3 870 and G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL Ripjaws PC3-12800 4GB ram. Since this board is prone to blowing the vrms. I was wondering if trying to overclock the ram via upping the dram voltage could also cause trouble?

DDR3 memory consumes very little power and the majority of motherboards should have (separate) VRMs that are more than capable of handling the voltage load of 4 DIMMs at 1.65+V.  Increasing DRAM voltage should not significantly increase the chance of VRM failure rate (whether this involves any VRM on the board or the CPU/NB 4+1 system) on this board.
