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.
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" />
