Question on RAM voltage

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,I was about to order 2 more sticks of RAM for computer but noticed that the manufacturer (Crucial) has made a change.What I have: 2 GB DDR2 804 Ballistix Kit, part no. BL2KIT12864AA804I believe this is listed at 2.2 volts.What's now available: 2 GB DDR@ 804 Ballistix Kit, Part no. BL2KIT12864AA80A. This is listed at 2.0 volts.Can I use 2 modules at 2.2 volts and 2 at 2.0 volts in my motherboard? The Gigabyte board has a dual channel confuguration, but makes no mention of voltage.Dale

Hi Dale, I have almost the same board and memory and am almost sure "one size fits all" when it comes to setting the ram voltage. However, you can relax the timings and find some common ground between the two. Get CPuz and click on the SPD tab at the top and it will list the spec's for your memory. Otherwise, OTTO will do the work for you if your not OC'ing. Hope it helps.Regards, Kendall#1: E8500 @ 3.95 - HyperTX2 Gigabyte P35-DS3L 4GB Ballistix Tracers PC6400 EVGA 8800GT - XG's 174.74 Seagate 250GB 7200.11 CH Yoke/Pedals/Saitek Throttle Dual Monitor: Dell 2405/1905 #2: Dell 8400 3.2 H.T. 3GB PC4200 - X800XT Diamond Xtreme/Logitech X-530's

Thanks Kendall,I'll check it out. I may have located some of the same type of RAM that I already have at a local store - if so, I'll go that route.Dale
