I believe it's called DDR2 Overvoltage control.

Here's a link to a thread on that board:http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/mai...l_6.html#sect0

Ah, I see. So I just have to figure out how to change it to 2.2 now... the GA-P35-D3SL board sure doesn't make voltages obvious for ya.

I believe if you press Ctrl + F1 in the BIOS (might be changed on the newer boards), you can access the memory timings.

Bump in case you missed thread #11, it might clear up your problem with the RAM voltage.

Thanks for the link! According to that, it looks like I have to up my voltage in their set increments. So if I'm at stock 1.8, I should up it .4 to get to where I need to go.

Yeah, just double check in your PC Health Status section of your BIOS to see where voltages are at right now....don't ever fully trust a software program, especially when it is different from the BIOS. Always trust BIOS first.

Actually, I was wrong about the step ups... I was looking at the overvoltage control. I still don't exactly see where to change the ram voltage, but I'm gonna go check what it's at now and see what it's at..

So, the way to up my voltage is to extend the limit on overvoltage? I guess I can give it a go.

Yep, this will add to your current default BIOS RAM Voltage.

Be sure to boot directly back into the BIOS after adjusting it and make sure you aren't exceeding your RAM's recommendation

I extended it to .4, and the "DDR18" voltage read still sits at 2.0. My timings are at 5 5 5 15, and I dont seem to have any issues, is this ok??
