Memory Voltage question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I see these are on sale for $94 shipped 2X http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148662, or the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148544 for 20 dollars more. The only difference is the cheaper one has Voltage 1.35V compared to the other Voltage 1.5V. I read ppl like to have a lower voltage for more overclocking, but will there really be a difference between the two?

I'd go for the lower voltage one simply because you can use the 20% off code on it.

Usually lower voltage indicates slightly less power consumption but for a stick of RAM it's not really a significant amount to begin with.

Here's a review for the 1.35v model. It doesn't overclock that well, but it doesn't really matter that much.

These days, getting a 2x4GB kit of DDR3-1600 CL9 RAM for under $50 is something that you don't want to miss.
