EP35-DS3L Memory Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am about to get the parts for my current build, but I have a question about the RAM I chose and the MOBO. The MOBO I chose, the EP35-DS3L says 1.8v for the RAM, but the RAM I want, OCZ Reaper 2GB, says that it's 2.1v. I have heard that some motherboard you would have to put in a 1.8v RAM then go into the BIOS and change it to 2.1v. Does anyone with a EP35-DS3L board know if the board will recognize my OCZ Reaper without having to first put a 1.8v stick in and changing the BIOS.

I am sure you will be fine, but I suppose it is dependent on the memory you bought. When DDR2 first starting to be on the scene I remember people having issues with this, but you just don't hear about it anymore.

I am awaiting the same motherboard with a mushkin memory kit that needs 2.1-2.2 volts, but there was a review on Newegg that someone with version older version of the motherboard that the EP35 replaced.
