I need a final word on this, will using 1.65v ram harm my CPU?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I had to recently RMA some my current ram and ever since then I have been scared if in fact I am harming my cpu in any way by using 1.65v ram. I would like to know both the short and long term affects that using 1.65v ram could have if there are any.

No, it will not. When Sandy Bridge was new a lot of people were saying to be careful with 1.65v rated RAM for p67 builds, and recommended to stick to 1.5v. However, now that we're almost a little over a year or so into SB's release, people have now realized that there is no harm done when it comes to using 1.65v rated RAM for a p67 build, and there was no degradation or signs of issue or instability when using 1.65v over 1.5v.

You have nothing to worry about smile.gif

i think you should be fine.. there was a lot of bickering about the voltage early on.. whats safe / not. However ppl have been running 1.65v for a long time now without issues, so i think its fine to say your in the clear.
