DDR3 1600 rated "1.55 - 1.75v", stable at 1.4v. Is this normal?...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just wondering as I finally decided to clock my RAM up to the 1600 it's supposed to be at and was surprised as I kept dropping the voltage again and again from default 1.600v all the way down to 1.407v where the computer finally crashed/reset after running prime95 ~10minutes, moved it up one to 1.415v and it's going strong since, haven't run any extended tests yet but am going to run this one for at least an hour. Just am curious I thought DDR3 couldn't really go below 1.5v without a lot of downclocking.

What are the timings? It's unlikely to be 100% stable even with loose timings at that frequency.

It was my bad not looking at the timings, it was running 9-11-11-29, no idea where it got such random numbers from, but it was stable after 30minutes of prime95. I set it to 9-9-9 but it won't let me change the last one to 24. When I select it in the BIOS the only option is "Auto" which puts it on 29. Any ideas? :/

Are you sure you are selecting the correct option in the bios?

Yeah. I would take screenshots but my only camera is my phone and it's decided to break, gotta go to Sprint today to get it fixed.

Maybe it's something that has been fixed in a later BIOSes. You could try a BIOS update and see if it changes that.

Eh, last one isn't a huge difference anyway. I've found that usually people on AMD systems using this RAM get problems though

I remember the V1 series . The first version of gaming series wasn't very promising and There were just too many kits that arrived DOA. ADATA immediately started manufacturing the V2 series in which all the bugs and issues were fixed and the ICs were upgarded . V2 series is now on whole new level,specially pulse V2 kits which equip Elpida chips, and overclock like a champ !
