    1.5V is just the rated stock voltage for the board as a specification, not what it needs or must use at all. You can use 1.8V or even 1.3V DDR3 on them, it's just a specification like 1.8V DDR2 boards, which we all use 2.0-2.2V memory on.

    Ya, you need to be sure the memory you choose is compatible, not just rated to some spec you think should work. If you cannot find anyone using a particular set with this board you like, then I suggest you pick one of the sets off the QVL, then you will know for sure it has been tested and will work.

    Here is your QVL
    http://www.gigabyte.us/FileList/Memo...a-p55m-ud2.pdf

    Lower voltages do not matter, and I actually suggest you get a 1.65V set, just one that you know someone else has been using that works with this board, or one from the QVL.

    Ahh see, you picked a ECO set, these are not 1.5V, so at least you are leaning away from thinking you must use that amount which is good to see because you do not have to at all!

    That is good memory I have heard, but I have not seen anyone using with this board so I can't say if it will work for sure or not, not many people use this model motherboard so I don't often see what those who do use it are using.

    Thanks for the reply Lsd, it's cleared a few things up in my head! I actually found this topic prior to buying the ECO RAM:

    Best RAM for Gigabyte P55M-UD2??? - New-System-Build - Homebuilt-Systems

    The very last post is from a G. Skill employee:

    The ECO series will work just fine with the UD2. You are right in that especially with 8GB, 4 modules, it would be extremely beneficial for low voltage. This creates less stress on the memory controller thus enhancing performance, keeping temperatures low, and many more benefits. We are certain that you will be satisfied.

    G.SKILL support
    If it has their seal of approval on it, I should be fine. SHOULD BE! We'll see...

    Cheers,

    Ian

    Ahh cool! So it looks like they have actually directly tested on this exact model, so you "Should Be" fine :)

    When should it arrive?

    And hey, sorry if any of the above was offensive to you, I did not mean to make it sound like that at all! After reading it again it sounded "off" to me, but I was just trying to convince you that you do not need a certain voltage set of memory for any board. You just need compatible memory or to set voltages a certain way, there isnt a 1.5V or 1.8V restriction that you need with any DDR2/DDR3 board is all.

    No offense taken! Seriously, everything you've said has been helpful. More helpful than other forums and even the "support" from where I bought the RAM from! I'm glad this place exists! :)
    Should be getting the RAM in the next couple of days so I guess it'll just be a case of installing it, heading into the BIOS and loading the optimized defaults before I run Windows for the first time. I really hope this is the solution to my problems.

    Thanks for all your help so far,

    Ian

    Cool!

    And thanks for your kind comments, we try out best to help everyone here the best we can!

    Yeap, sounds like that is all you will need to do. Of course you probably should still set the 1.35 Dram voltage, and maybe set your own QPI/Vtt, but auto everything may be ok.

    Post back and let us know how you get along!

    Hello all, quick update:

    RAM came today, just installed it. In the BIOS, I loaded optimized defaults then had to select XMP to enabled to get the memory to run at its rated 1600MHz. I did notice something strange when I looked at the timings, they were 9-26-9-154 instead of the 9-9-9-24 which is written on the packet. Why would this be the case? Here are two screenshots from CPU-Z to better illustrate my point (again, with different timings). Is this bad?

    try without xmp,just raise your memory multiplier in the bios to achieve 1600mhz,then put in the timings 9-9-9-24-1T,and set you dram according to ram spec and set qpi voltage to 1.3v...look at what xmp sets it at and set qpi/vtt to that or slightly lower

    Hey Warren, the multiplier only takes me to 1333 maximum so apparently this is the only way to get up to 1600. Why do those timings look so weird?

    Cheers,

    i dont know why its giving you those readings,only way to go further than 1333mhz and achieve 1600mhz is to overclock your cpu slightly

    Hey, doesn't setting it to XMP profile 1 sort of start to overclock it anyway? Pardon my ignorance, I know next to nothing about overclocking. So there's a better way to achieve 1600 without using the profile?

    Cheers,

    Ian
