post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have 2x2 Gskill ripjawsX @ 1600 MHz in my P8P67 . If i buy another 2x2 GB kit, will that affect my cpu OC potential ,and will i have to raise my vcore? now is 1.275 v @ 4.2 Ghz.I'm asking this cause i dont want to raise my vcore just cause of ram . Thx:D

Wait... do you have 2x2GB or 2x4GB like your sig rig states? If you have 2x4GB I definitely wouldn't get a 2x2GB, unnecessary. If you have 2x2GB then I would either add another or sell and get a 2x4GB kit. In some applications or even BF3 if you play will see a nice benefit from 8GB compared to 4GB.

I had a similar question a while ago, going from 1 stick to 2 and the response was no it wouldn't effect the CPU voltage. I was working on OC'ing my 2500k with 1x4 GB stick while I waited for my 2x2 GB kit to arrive. Sure enough when I switched to the 2x2 kit it was still stable, even with higher ram speeds. You may however need to raise the DRAM voltage, VCCIO, and / or lower your timings.

Intel CPU's, unlike AMD CPU's, use the northbridge chipset as the memory controller. This, in turn, enables a CPU to remain stable when increasing sticks of Ram. So, to answer your question...No, you will not have an issue with CPU stability when running 2 vs 4 sticks of Ram smile.gif

I wouldnt say a definite no but more likely if anything you might have to bump the IMC voltage up a notch or so if it doesnt work so its no big deal. Unless it some how makes your oc unstable from extra heat. I would say that would be very small chance of that happening tho.
