I have a DC kit of OCZ memory 2x512mb, currently set at 2.5,2,2,7. I can change the voltage from 1.6 ~ 1.8. My question is will there be a change in performance if I increase the voltage? Also, do you think I can get lower timings, say 2,2,2,5 if I increase the voltage and maintain stability? Currently at 1.6, if I lower the timings my computer wont post. Thanks for any help.

2.6-2.8v actually, but yes, RAM can run higher speeds with voltage increases.<br>
Go for the tightest timing at the highest speed possible for the best over all performance of the RAM.

And that is why you shouldnt pose a question if you stayed out till 3am drinking and have to be at work at 8am. She was fun though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"> .<br><br>
Thanks for the answer, I will try a higher voltage and tighter timings when I get home and I meant to put 2.6 ~ 2.8 not the latter. Thanks again.

2.8v should be fine, I don't know of any DDR RAM that can't take that much vdimm safely.

Well BH-5 can take much higher as I am sure you know Duke. I put my ram up to 3.6v today (G.Skill is in the mail).<br><br>
