ps, What is the recommended ram voltage for the released SB cpus/mobos? I have read 1.35v but I can't verify it...
Hey Cait, thanks very much for your kind words. I'm happy you have found this thread useful!
To be honest, I really don't know exactly what the recommended voltage for the dimms is. I have heard many conflicting reports, such as Intel says max of 1.5v, other sources (not sure how reliable) have stated as high as 1.8 is ok.
My Asus manual says "according to Intel CPU spec, DIMM voltage below 1.65v is recommended to protect the CPU"
My Corsair Dominators are rated for 1.65, and that is what I have had it set at right from the start, I have been ok thus far; but if you are concerned then I would suggest you set it at whatever you are most comfortable with. 1.5v would probably be a good start.
