I let my mobo decide the voltage for some crucial ballistix and it set it to 1.6v<br />
Could that cause errors in memtest86?

If the voltage on your ram is set to low, then yes, ofcourse it can cause errors. It would be the same thing as undervolting a CPU then running prime95. Arent those high voltage DIMM's? Let me go check. I would suggest setting it at what the Manufacture suggests. That ram should be running at 2.8 volts as seen here: <a href="http://www.crucial.com/ballistix/store/listmodule.asp" target="_blank">http://www.crucial.com/ballistix/store/listmodule.asp</a> . Check out the bottom of the page.

Thats low for even DDR2. Try putting it to 2.8v

very likely yes. Check what the stock voltage of these sticks is. 1.6V seems very low to me.

OH CRAP I MEANT 2.6v! I know its supposed to run at 2.8 but it runs really hot at that temp so i thought that 2.6 couldn't hurt. But if it causes it to crap out, ill up it

Run 2.8V. It isn't rated for that voltage for nothing. Rig a fan for some extra airflow if you're worried.<br />

i upped the voltage and i ran memtest but i still got errors. I got 68% through the first complete pass and then it gave up at 738 errors!I doesn't matter though, I've got 2gb crucial ballistix tracers on the way here anyways!<img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" />
