Can high voltage damage the memory?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Can high voltage damage the memory or it's just the heating? I read somewhere that DDR2 maximum recommended voltage is 1.9 volts, but memory modules must withstand up to 2.3 volts before incurring permanent damage.

or how I can stabilized the ram? Only with increasing DRAM voltage or there are other ways?

Only 1.9!?
Lol, stock is 1.8
Most performance kits run at 2.1!?

yes I know....stock is 1.8, rec 1.9, and my in the moment runing at 2.1, but it's not stable. Is there something else that I can do to stabilized it except DRAM voltage?

Not stable despite 2.1?
Hmm, would upping CPU-NB voltage a few notches or upping NB voltage a notch do anything for you?
Might be a simply DOA kit

tnx for the help, I've push up the CPU-NB VID voltage with 1 step and now it's stable. I'm testing it with SuperPI at 32M digits.
