2x4GB for Sandy Bridge, recommendations?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I'm upgrading to SB soon and want to get a set of 2x4GB memory.
Will 1.65v cause any problem or damage on P67?

I'm thinking about getting two sticks of Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600Mhz 7-8-7-20($120) or a set of Mushkin Black DDR3 2000Mhz 9-11-9-27 ($148) but they are both 1.65v instead of the recommended 1.5v for SB.

Any thoughts?

Grab some ripjaws made by G.Skill from newegg. You can get a set of the 1600s for around 50 bucks for 2x2GB

These things are pretty good and a great price!

Also you should stick to the stated recommended max voltage on the ram or you risk frying the memory controller. I don't think you want that. So that means sticks that are 1.5v and down.

1.65 is still fine. Over that it gets dangerous.

Today is the last day for these two deals. Personally, I would get the 2133MHz memory and be done with it. That's an awesome price. No need to worry about 1.65v. You can probably drop the voltage anyway but again, 1.65v is not going to hurt anything. Just don't go beyond 1.65.

2x4GB DDR3 2133 (9-11-9-28) - $149.99

2x4GB DDR3 1600 (7-8-7-24) - $109.99

If you're going to set your CPU vcore up to 1.52v then anything past 1.5v on your memory voltage will be dangerous to your setup.

Dangerous means your going to be out of the maximum allowable voltage settings.

1.5v is the recommended ram voltage for P67 desktop boards.

intel recomment 1.5v + or - 2% for memory controller. Above that the memory controller will degrade much faster than normal.

i understand recommended is 1.5V; there are RAM available at 1.65V at default

so will there be a problem ? and it will be effecting the RAM or the processor or the Motherboard ..

thanks for such a fast reply ..
