    What sort of voltage should RAM be ran at?, my soltek board says 2.5 is the default.

    is there any advantages/disadvantages from running a higher voltage?

    Only in some cases when runnin' high frequencies though it will run hotter plus some memory likes it and others don't but all ya can do is try. ;)

    what should you run it at if it's not hitting 2.5volts on the 2.5 setting, but it does at the 2.6v?

    I have not been able to run my computer at full clock speed since I got it (easter), in my vain atempt to get it working i have got:
    new psu
    replaced Video card
    new psu
    new MoBo
    new RAM

    I'm running the voltage at 2.6v (reading at 2.5v in bios last check), I have to ajust some 1 of the ram timings tonight (checked the proper one's at corsairs site), and my Video card i know is half stuffed because tv-out don't work (i'm saving up for a new one).
    I have pretty much come to the conclusion that if it's not my ram/bios settings then it's either faulty video card or cpu, which is not good either way because where i got them from has shut down (stealth technologies).

    Well then up it to 2.6v then as the low voltage being reported maybe the problem but I wouldn't take it over 2.8v if the mobo is capable of more. ;)

    i think i have 2.5, 2.6, 2.7
    what if that does not work, any other sugestions on what the problem could be?
    I'm really getting sick of having to run at 1050Mhz, i can't even put it much higher than that with out crashing! it hasn't had a big crash on me yet with the new ram, but it still is not getting through 3Dmark2001se

    The only other things that I can think of is there a BIOS update for the board plus if the memory is getting low voltage then maybe the CPU is too. :?:
