Core I7 and CB memory

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Whats going on guys. Alright straight to the point. I've been utterly in love with the tracer series from CB and would love to buy some for my new core i7 build. However, the only ddr3 series tracers they make seem to be rated at the higher then recommended voltage for use with the core i7. Would there be any way whatsoever to get these to work with my build? If not then if somebody could point me in the direction of some fairly decent mem that would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Yes, however, all of the ddr3 tracer series I can find is rated at 1.8v which leads me back to my original post.

I think DDR3 1600 is the limit of 1.65 volts. Everything else has higher voltages and there aren't even any set standards, so it's really a free for all. Going above 1333mhz almost certainly requires a heavy cpu overclock so you don't fry anything.
