    Default Easy Tune reporting way high DRAM voltage

    I was looking at ET for another reason and noticed that it said my DRAM was running at 1.616V. I immmediatly rebooted to get to the BIOS because it should not be over 1.5V.

    BIOS reports the settings as they should be 1.5V. IS ET simply wrong or have I got a problem somewhere?

    Are you overclocking anything or with stock settings?
    Which ram model exactly do you use?

    if you set it to auto these overclocking programs can do harmFor instance asus turbo v if you overclock higher it will take cpu vcore to 2.1 and destroy the chip, ive seen it happen before. . I manually set my voltages.

    It does appear to have been Easy Tune. I uninstalled it.

    That is a bad thing for it to do. It is 1.5V RAM. I had assumed it was smart. How does it decide what settings to use?

    was it an old version of easytune? if you set dram voltage to 1.5v in the bios then easytune should display that unless you altered the voltage in easytune and saved it as a profile?

    Have you checked PC Health Status to see it is wrong?

    It was the current easy Tune. It is gone.

    I will try manually setting things for overclock.

    Software is never 100% accurate. Then again, neither are BIOS readings. If you have a multimeter and know where the DIMM voltage readout is on your board, I would do that.

    1.5v isn't the MAX, it's 1.65v (or 1.66v before Vdrop).

    The Max VDIMM is whatever the DIMMs are rated at, and in this case it is 1.5V: G.SKILL-Products

    If you use ET6 to over clock, of course it will raise voltages. In essence it's going to raise Bclk values to achieve its OC, therefore running the RAM beyond DDR-1600, which will either require more voltage or simply fail.

    Having said that, running 1.5V RAM at 1.61V isn't exactly dangerous.

    i would clear the cmos,load optimised defaults and re-enter your bios/oc settings,then re-install easytune and see if it shows correct dram voltage
