Voltage for 12GB Mushkin @1600 mhz memory

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Since my mobo (MSI X58 Pro-E) supports memory up to 1333 mhz and 1600 mhz (oc) I decided to pick up 3x4 GB of Mushkin 1600 mhz memory. I successfully oced the board and everything seems to be running fine, however I wonder if I should up the voltage or some other parameters for the ram. As is all seems fine, and I'm running LinX while I'm typing this to test the memory but I would like to know the principle: does this kind of oc-ing require some additional tweeks and if yes which ones? All advice is appericiated. smile.gif

What's the current voltage, and what voltage is the RAM spec'ed for? You should set your BIOS voltage to match the specified voltage. However, if you're running LinX and passing a few rounds of Memtest86+ I wouldn't worry about it too much. A lot of newer 1600 DIMMs will run at that speed on 1.5V, even if they're officially rated for 1.65V.

Well thanks a lot, I looked at the sticker on my memory and it stated 1,5V, I went to bios and changed "auto" to 1,5V so it should all be fine now. Because of your help I knew what to look for, thanks once more. smile.gif
