is the RAM designed to work @ 1.5V but can stand up to 1.9V or does it need 1.9V to run reliably ? With the ASUS P6T...you should be able to bump the voltage to 1.9V whereas big box, off-the-shelf PCs don't usually have those voltage options in the BIOS. On the downside...higher voltage means greater heat.
Bottomline, I'd ask Kingston and see what they say. Please let us know too.
I am building a new system which I need for raw computing power.
I was going to go for a Core i7 950 (3.06Ghz) on an ASUS P6T Deluxe V2.
The question I have is what RAM to buy. The problem I have is, because I am buying it through the company I work at, i can only get what is on the uk.insight.com website... and they only have Kingston DDR3 modules which are on the QVL.
Now I want to have 12 GB of RAM in this thing, so I chose to go either with
Both DDR3 modules are on the QVL and say that I can have all memory banks full of these.
The problem I am having is the KHX is a hyper X DIMM (1600) from Kingston and it says to use 1.9v whereas the KVR is a value RAM (1333) from Kingston with 1.5v.
Intel says that for the Core i7s you should use RAM within 1.5v-1.65v.
So my question is, will this work with 1.9v? Or should I got with the value RAM just in case?
Anybody have any experience with core i7s and hyper X RAM?
