Depending upon your MOBO, set the memory using the XMP and Profile 1 then look at the new VCCSA Voltage value. Now if it were me and the XMP Profile loads a VCCSA of 1.25v then I'd manually adjust it down to 1.15v~1.20v and run Memtest for 4-full passes i.e. overnight and if you wake up to no errors and Memtest is still running then leave it at the lower value.

Alright, thanks. So that VCCSA readout will change automatically when I change XMP in the BIOS right?

Also, If i test this kit on my friend's build and see that all is well would the same apply when I put it into my system (don't have all the parts yet)? That is, does XMP profile/ VCCSA readout change as a function of which CPU/MOBO I'm testing it with? Or is a good kit good regardless of what system it goes into?

Once the XMP setting is enabled in the BIOS if the XMP Profile includes a VCCSA setting then the VCCSA will be entered automatically in accordance to the encoded value if applicable.

Here's an example of an XMP setting: DDR3-1600, CAS 9-9-9-24-2N, DRAM Voltage 1.35v and VCCSA 1.20v:

Testing the RAM on someone else's system is of little value other than IF a stick were bad. Working Settings & Voltages vary from MOBO, BIOS revisions, and CPU used.

My best advice is to buy all of your components together in case something is 'bad' and before the 30 day retail RMA window is closed. An RMA to an OEM is a PITA in comparison to many retailers e.g. NewEgg is very easy a day or two vs ASUS/Gigabyte/Etc can take 20~30 days.

What he is asking is this:  he doesn't have his own motherboard yet, so could he find out whether or not this memory requires (or sets) a VCCSA of 1.25V by putting this in his friend's motherboard (which is compatible)?  If he puts this memory in his friend's motherboard and sets it to X.M.P. and if it sets the VCCSA to 1.25V, then is it safe to assume that there is a 100% chance that it will do the same in the motherboard he will have soon?

I thought I answered that in the first couple paragraphs, the XMP encoding is universal to Intel MOBO's. So IF the OP's friend's Intel PC supports the same XMP revision then it will load the VCCSA if it's encoded into the RAM kit.

Applications like AIDA64 Extreme Edition under [+] Motherboard [+] SPD will show the 'Memory Controller' voltage value and all of the XMP attributes.
