Blame it on the dirty room.. I would've said that you went Green and broke it cause you had to RMA your AMD card.. tongue.gif

They accepted it until they received it.. then they shipped it back still broken.
I had actually stepped on it while building a rig in a messy room.
The moral of the story? KEEP YOUR MANCAVE CLEAN.

Sounds like you needed CCleaner tongue.gif

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Boards will let you do this for the extreme cases...had you had a pot of liquid nitrogen cooling your memory 2.10 volts might have been ok.

I think my mother board will let me run 2 volts to my CPU too, but I wouldn't expect that to do any good just on water cooling.

Yeah, you didn't bump the voltage, you jumped the voltage. Most of the time when people are talking about bumping the voltage, they're talking about a max of 0.05v increments until you reach stability. I'm also surprised you saw recommendations for lowering timings to make it more stable when loosening timings is usually the recommendation for stability.

Basically instead of trying to fill a water balloon with a trickle at a bathroom faucet then moving up to a stronger stream to try and make it work, you jumped straight from a trickle at your faucet to a fire hose. I'm trying to remember the spec, but according to JEDEC standards, DDR3 has to operate stably at 1.575v or lower and the max voltage the RAM has to be able to support for a set period of time is something like 1.9-2.0v. That's not a voltage that it has to be able to operate at long term though, it's only a short term requirement.

Hmm, the stick was only 1 second or so in the slot. It also fell from my table like 1 meter or so on the ground. I'm not sure what kills it first?

Uh, yeah, I would call that increase a LOT.

Fyi... for DDR3, 1.65v is top ceiling on AIR with no fans for 24/7 and 1.75v with fans (and possibly a pinch of degradation). 1.75v+ are typically for short bench runs for max speeds. 1.85v - 1.9v are the manufacturer limits when physical damage happens. LN2 clockers go to 2.0v+ for insanity purposes. Surely, you were making chicken ramein and simply forgot the salt.
