RAM voltage question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, so my motherboard's stock voltage setting for the DDR2 slots are 1.8v and the 2 sticks of RAM I've been running says it needs 2.0V-2.1V. Even though I've been running it for a week now at stock settings and everything seems to be running fine and stable, do you think i should up the voltage on the mobo +0.2 or +0.3 to match the requirements for the RAM or leave everything "as is"?

Thanks

Do you know for a fact that the RAM voltage is still only 1.8V with the RAM you have in there? You should verify it with a program! Motherboards should adjust the voltage to meet the RAM needs, because otherwise one couldn't use different RAM on the motherboard...
