Crucial Ballistix 6400 at 2.1v?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Since Ballistix are rated at 2.2v, would they still be able to run fine at 2.1v or will there be a huge performance decrease?

They will be fine, just use memtest to see if they have errors, if not its all good.

Well, the reason I ask is because I'm looking for Motherboards, and one that was recommended to me has a max 2.1v for memory, which I'm hoping won't be a problem for the Ballistix.

Hmm I doubt it will. Most sticks will run under the recommended. If they would you can run into issues booting on a fresh install as the motherboard will default to 1.8v.

It's kind of a chance still if you ask me. If that's there "minimum recommended" voltage you might wanna think twice?

I use mine to boot into boards that default to 1.8v so stock timings and speed you shouldnt need more then 1.9volts to be stable. You could probably get a decent oc with 2.1 volts on em.

What mobo are you getting.

You should be all set. Just dont plan on too much overclocking headroom.

I know that my sticks will boot 50/50 at my boards stock vdimm voltage of 1.84v

Since I really don't need much out of my board besides overclocking, I was considering the 650i Ultra after reading its reviews. It's very basic, but the OC on it is very nice. I saw many people getting mid 400's, for an $80 board. The only problem is the max voltage is 2.1v and Ballistix recommended is 2.2v. Just not sure if that will affect the performance much, if at all.
