You should be fine until 1.75v for 24/7, but anything over just for benching smile.gif

BTW, very nice RAM kit thumb.gif

Are the 5th-8th digits of the serial number "1500" (HCH9), or "2500" (HYK0)?

If HCH9, then I've seen guys pump 2.0v+ into those without adverse effects, so something along the lines of 1.75v to 1.8v should be fine. If they are HYK0, then I might be just a little more conservative and keep it to the 1.7v to 1.75v range, only because there isn't quite as much of a history for those chips in high voltage 24/7 usage.

Thank you guys and reeefa. They're 2500's. I just dropped the stock clocks down to 10-12-12 and upped the voltage to 1.68v and will do some testing at 2800. Would be sweet if they can do 3000

Here you go...a starting point...2820 at 9-12-12-21-1T...only took 2.0v.

Obviously not for 24/7 use...but pretty darn impressive clocks/timings.

Use this newer version of Maxxmem:

MaxxMEM2_Preview.zip 1154k .zip file

Should help with some of that blotched out stuff.

Hiya. I'm using a very similar kit. It's the 2400MHz 2x8GB. I'm guessing 1.75V is going to be okay for those ones too? How hot can these things get without causing problems? I'm talking under full memory load, 24/7.
