High Mhz memory - Scaling with lower voltage ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi

Looking at the new G.Skill and other high Mhz kits - 2400 Mhz + ....

http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=515

All these kits uses 1.65 Volt, but would love a lower voltage, something like 1.35 Volt (Like the Eco Kits), and still want more than 1600 Mhz ...

- So could a 2600 Mhz 1.65 volt Kit run at mayby 2000 Mhz 1.35 volt ? - Or are they only build to run at higher voltage.

Hope you can see where im going redface.gif

Regards Henrik

Depends on the integrity of the RAM. It's a similar concept when it comes to Over/Under clocking anything. It all depends on the quality and ability of the item.

A lot of people just say that memory like the Trident are not build to run at low voltage like 1.35v, and they will be no better than the lov voltage Eco og Sniper series ...

Its going on a Z77 motherboard + i7-2600k ....

Tbh I don't think those chips would perform very well at 1.35v, but then again it is a gamble and you would really have no way of knowing unless you tried it yourself.

Was hoping not to buy 10 kits just to test it tongue.gif ...

Some of the older G.Skill Eco 1,35v kits is scaling pretty well with higher volt, but dont see any one testet the other way around - 2600 Mhz 1,65 kits with lower voltage

there's no point, the power savings from going from a 1.65v kit to 1.35v kit is so small you wont notice any difference on your power bill.

Dont care about the power saving, not the point .... Any low voltage result on the Trident ?
