G.Skill 16gb DDR3 Voltage

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I have been re-overclocking my rig since I got some new ram sticks. They are 2x8GB G.Skill 1600MHz (http://www.gskill.com/en/product/f3-1600c9d-16gxm). I am overclocking on my P55 platform with i7 870 currently @ 4.05 Ghz. Motherboard is Gigabyte GA-p55a-ud4.

Now The question I have is related to the RAM voltage. It is rated for 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 @ 1.5v. The thing is, I had to increase the voltage to 1.63v in order to get it stable @ 1690 MHz, as that what my CPU overclock required. Is this RAM voltage safe for those sticks, or should I dial it back down and try loosening the timings instead? The problem occurs in LinX, as I get an error after a few passes. In prime, it ran stable for 4+hrs on all three modes (Small FFT, Large FFT and Blend).

Much appreciated,

A little over voltage is perfectly fine.

If LinX crashes then it's mostly down to CPU than memory, it's too tough on memory as a stability test.
I too don't see any issues with you running the memory at 1.63V with it being rated at 1.5.
