G.SKILL Ripjaws Z 8GB 2400Mhz & Haswell 4670K Compatibility

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was completing my build on pcpartpicker.com and I stumbled on a message on the bottom that stated my RAM selection was not compatible with my CPU.
I'm about half-way done with my build, I still have yet to purchase the CPU, RAM, and CPU cooler. But I have selected what I am going to purchase, and this is the only problem I have stumbled across.

This is what pcpartpicker.com had told me:

"G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory operating voltage of 1.65V exceeds the Intel Haswell CPU recommended maximum of 1.5V+5% (1.575V). This memory module may run at a reduced clock rate to meet the 1.5V voltage recommendation, or may require running at a voltage greater than the Intel recommended maximum."


Here are the specs of my build:

NZXT Phantom 410 ATX Case
Corsair CX 600W PSU
Gigabyte Z87X-D3H Motherboard
Intel i5 4670K Haswell 3.4Ghz CPU
G.SKILL Ripjaws Z 8GB (2x4gb) 2400mhz RAM
Gigabyte GTX 770 Windforce OC 2GB GPU
Corsair Hydro H60 Water Cooler
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM HDD
ASUS 24X/48X Optical Drive
Windows 7 Home Premium


Any clue what this means? I had no clue my RAM exceeds the voltage recommended by Haswell; does this mean I should swap out my RAM for a different one?

You're safe using 1.65v ram.

It should work out of the box but it'll only be at 1600 I believe. You'll have to go into the BIOS and switch it to 2400 and 1.65V. Why are you set on 2400? I know that they recently had that article about how BF4 liked high speed ram, but unless you're using an APU it's not really necessary.

Don't listen to PC part picker, people are running 3000MHz memory on Haswell all day. 1.65v has been acceptable since Sandy Bridge. The 2400MHz memory will run fine, has been doable since Ivy Bridge.

Pretty much all you will have to do is enable XMP in Bios and you will be good to go.
