i agree. ocz has been making crap for some time now. 8gb is definately the way to go with bulldozer. 2x4 or 4x2.

I see you've got similar RAM Sticks to mine Patriot Viper II .

I have been wondering recently how much I can rise the voltage up and what would be consequences of pushing the voltage to (let's say) 2.1 V or even a bit higher?
Of course I am aware that I can fry my ram but is there any possibility to damage any other component ... MOBO, CPU ... anything ?

I have to check if they can reach 1600 MHz with 6-6-6-18-24 timings. I have tried 1.95 V, 2.01 V and even 2.05 but still nothing ... they are simply unstable.

So, this is my question ... Is there a chance that I will damage anything else (besides memory modules) if I rise voltage too high?

i ran mine at 1.95v (1.7v is the spec) for almost 6 months because i read the wrong voltage spec. they are still working. there's always a possibility of burning up a component when you give it more volts.

See I found that if I gave my ram any more voltage it would be unstable. I seem to have a narrow window of voltage before instability 1.65-1.72 anything more or less and it is unstable even at stable speeds.

So, you need 1.95 V to run your ram stable? :/ Strange
Mine are identified as PC3-8500 so they run orginally with speed of 1066 MHz and need only 1.5 - 1.65 V to run stable but at a label on a box it says they are PC3-12800, so it's like 1600 MHz. To run them stable at 7-7-7-20-27 1T I need sth like 1.8 V max.
Red "zone" (dangerous voltages) in BIOS starts from 1.95 V. Have you ever heard these Ram sticks run with voltage higher than 2.1 V ?

I'm trying to set my cpu voltage manually but its set to auto(greyed out). How can I change them?
Should I disable spread spectrum?
