i've never been a big fan of manufacturer's windows software. quite often they don't ever update the software for
newer boards.

look in your bios for the ram voltage and see what it says there. from the corsair vengeance all i see is 1.5v. i could be
wrong with yours.


post #1725 of 1767
yeah the dominator ddr3 1600mhz is rated online as 1.65v and also on the ram its self the sticker says 1.65v, so in the great scheme of things, does this mean the volate to the memory should actually be that in the bios etc?
or does it mean this is a max voltage and can be lower fine but meaning shouldn't be any higher etc?

if other people had this motherboard and memory and there must be some seen as this is the offical crosshair III forum lol with this memory what would other expect to see or would set the volate to in the bios for this memory?
post #1726 of 1767
yeah i got the wrong memory in my head. biggrin.gif 1.65v is the voltage that is required for it to run specs. so yes it needs to be 1.65v. look in the bios. somewhere it should state the voltage it's running.

post #1727 of 1767
i have that board for a backup and brought up from the basement.

you can check the ram voltage under the power tab in the bios under voltage.

post #1728 of 1767
Ok so went in bios to check and do the following bios version 2003 first off.
going down to DRAM volage was as follows, and assume this was for all sticks as i have 4 in place and there was 4 showing.

1.204 / 1.111 / 1.812 / 1.554 found is strange there was all so different??

in different bit the voltage Monitor is stated 1.554

so i changed the setting in DRAM voltage as was set to AUTO obviously to 1.64300 next one up was slightly over at 1.65625

in the temps monitoring section had a quick check and were all as follows.
CPU 31 degrees
MB 25 degrees
NB 42 degrees
SB 39 degrees
post #1729 of 1767
ok, see how it runs now.

check cpuz memory tab for the timings. are they at specs?

post #1730 of 1767
i dont have cpuz will have to download it, wheres best place? the timings are on the sticks, think they are 9-9-9-24? from memory without looking as cant see them when in case does that sound about right? so cpuz should match this then or?
