Did I make a bad purchase?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I found a great deal on G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH, for $100.

I have a Sabertooth Z77 board, with an OC i5 2500K. I read, that 1.65v may not be best for the CPU. Should I return it? Should I downclock it? What is going on?

1.65 mem volts is normal, and not what voltage the cpu runs at

the memory and cpu have different voltage controllers


1.65 v on DDR3 = a OK
1.65 v on i5 2500K = dead chip

Your fine. Sandy and Ivy can handle up to 1.71v on the RAM.

I know that. I thought using 1.65 on memory hinders CPU somehow. Stability, and, or longevity.
