probably a stupid X79 voltage question...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a G. Skill 16GB quad channel 2133mhz 1.65V memory kit, and have been reading recently that the 1.65V's are very dangerous to the 3930k's, so can I run my memory 24/7 for a few years @ 1.6-1.65V for the full 2133mhz? or should I knock it down to 1867 @ 1.5V or even better sell this ram and buy the new samsung ram coming out soon (if not out already)

1.65V vdimm is still fine for s2011. With a c2 stepping 3930k you just have to be careful with the vccio voltage, over 1.2V brings higher chances of degrading the cpu. C1 stepping was more forgiving with voltages.
The samsung low voltage memory has been out for a while, good price/performance stuff.

I had heard that they were going to release a 8bg stick version of the stuff they have out now, it would be a nice upgrade (wanted 32GB for a while now) but I still would like the high clocks...

But I will run it at the Max I can then with 1.65V (2400mhz with stock timings)
