What voltage should gskill eco 1.35V never experience?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So far I had them up to 1.65+2 ticks, (1.675???)

I'm very happy they survived, I'd have to wait 2 weeks to replace them.

For now no more upper volt tests, but???

What should I never USE for 1.35V eco's, for an everyday setup?

I really wouldnt go above 1.5v, though its best to just not go above the rating at all. I mean it will be fine but you heighten the risk of failure and you decrease the life span of your ram. hope this helps,throw a PM if you need me.

Well in a couple of weeks I will get a IR thermometer, but in the air flow of the front 90mm fan, they feel cooler than the VRM/MOSFETs, and about the same as the cool SouthBridge.

I need to try lower than the current 1.625V ram, as thats higher than needed (at least thats not what I had to up lately to get stable), but to get 6-8-6-20-24-1T, its close to their limit.

Above 1.65V is either above or exactly where the kit's voltage-overclockability scaling stops
Assuming standard PSC IC binning, these should start seeing long term damage at 1.75V. But considering this is binned for "ECO" operation, it might be somewhat less than that. However, I have been running my ECOs at 1.6V now nearly a year, they are solid and cool even at this voltage but mine can't do 6-7-6 OS freezes from the moment I change in overdrive; change in BIOS, no boot

2 weeks is pretty quick compared to other companies, I've seen sometimes G.Skill able to do it in just one

I ran mine at 1.65 for a few months, no issues, and they're currently at 1.55v in my wifes computer, and again no issues. 1.65-1.7 would be the maximum I would do them with personally.

I had a set of C7 ECO kit. It ran at 1.56v with 1055t for 6 months, and it works fine. I won't let it above 1.65v for sure.

my motherboard once set them to 1.8v and i didnt notice it (was trying some auto oc function), and they ran just fine like that for an hour until i noticed it

now im running them @ 1736-7-8-7-24 1.47v

I've had mine for a few months now at 1.6-1.65. No problems yet.

The kit that I have is rated at 1333Mhz 8-8-8-24-2N

My kit hates for the tRCD to be under 9. No matter what voltage I throw at it, it still fails Prime95 blend within 30 seconds.

I currently have it at 8-9-8-24-2N at 1672Mhz at 1.6 Volts. Stable under the custom Ram and chipset test for two hours. Maybe I should run it for longer.

It's pretty much a lower-end generic-binned ECO. Don't expect results as good as the 1600 7-8-7 kit.
