While that was correct in the days of DDR2. Higher voltage Ram has a higher overclocking limit.

Low voltage RAM is just for Intel chipsets, as they can't handle higher voltage RAM. However with AMD Boards you want the higher voltage ram, as they have different modules that're better suited for AMD setups.

Does this 3DMark06 score look right for my system?

Thank you very much for your time. So I assume on your machine the option doesn't exist either?

Happy Pre-Thanksgiving everyone!

Im sorry but your wrong goto the OCZ forums and say that and see what they say

I have also seen many posts that the low voltage ram is better at overclocking and even at running stock (RAM rated, 1600mhz) speeds and timings.

Well i can hit 4Ghz at 1.45v, 4.1Ghz takes 1.55v but i cant get 4.2 stable even though im still not hitting 60C. Heres a pic of me at 4Ghz, i want to lower my 4.1Ghz voltage, i know it can run at a lower voltage but im not sue what to raise to compensate those volts that i take out the CPU core to make it just as steady...Any gurus around?
As you can see by the pic i dont have a cooling problem and i feel like im not at my hardware's limit...really dunno whats up.

With W 7 x64, you may want to stick with a 4.0+ for your 24/7 clock. Volts are much better, temps are probably better, and the difference in day to day use is minimal, especially since few people are actually asking their CPU to run max load very often.

At high volts I would strongly suggest using the C&Q so as to keep the volts down as much as possible, better overall, and certainly for the CPU's lifespan.

C&Q dosent work...enabled it but i think because the NB is OCed it wont work
