Seriously.

The XMP profiles on these things set the QPI to 1.35v anyway, allowing for a safe voltage all the way up to 1.85v, but they still limit it at 1.65v, making it really expensive as the binning is a lot harder.

The only reason there is a 1.65v limit is because of the stock VTT of 1.15v, giving a 0.5v difference.

So why did Intel do this if the RAM XMP raises the QPI anyway? Presumably to stop noobs frying their CPU if they dont use the XMP and just punch in the volts manually?

FYI, I run my RAM at 1.68v with a QPI of 1.355v, runs fine.

I don't remember what my QPI is... i don't think it is that high though and I run mine at 1.65v and it is rock solid.

My memory is stable with 1.50. I have an ASUS board so my IMC is set to something like 1.135. Memory Stable at 1810 and cpu at 3.8.
And your points are...
