Ram timings - Page 4

1.65V max? Do you mean that your board cannot increase it higher or you don't want to?

You should be fine increasing it a bit more; the Dominator's heatsinks look capable enough.

Intel said raising Ram voltage above 1.65 would damage CPU. Not taking the risk

I know ram can handle it. I even got the Dominator Ram cooler.

The RAM voltage is unrelated to the CPU voltage.

Raising the RAM voltage could only damage the RAM, although that won't happen if you're just raising it a little bit. When did Intel say that anyway?

By bios gives that warning. Also if I google for the max safe Ram voltages many of them say 1.65 is max

Ah whatever; it's up to you.

After som searching on the web, I found that 1.65 is the max due the standart 1.15 QPI voltabe. If QPI is raised you just need to keep Dram withing .5V of QPI.
They advice not to go over 1.70

Tried uping dram to 1.68V. System boots but is slower than before. Superpi gives error.
Tried uping dram at 1.70V. Superpi still gives error.

The real world difference between 9-9-9-24 and 8-9-8-24 is rather small.
And personaly not worth the risk damaging something.

I'll just stay with 9-9-9-24.
