Just received and installed my RMA'd DS3R from 'egg. My defective board was a rev 1, and the new one is a rev 2. I installed it and noticed that the memory voltage isn't up to par with the rev 1 board. The default is supposedly 1.8v, with .1 to .7 volts increments. On my rev 1 board, it was pretty linear, so .4 was 2.2v, .6 was 2.4v. On the rev 2 I can't get the stinkin' memory voltage above 2.35v. When I have it at .4, it shows 2.11v, when at .6 it shows 2.3v. Maxed at .7 it only shows 2.35v, which would've been 2.5v on my rev 1 board (never went that high though).

Anyone else with rev 2 board seeing this? It seems like it's got a .1v vdroop on memory, and the rev 1 board had none (maybe even a little extra). I'm reading these in SpeedFan 4.33, Vcore2, same place I was reading it on rev 1. The memory is the same, Patriot Extreme PC2-6400 LLC, and because of the missing voltage it isn't OC'ing as high as it did on rev 1. I was previously able to run 1110Mhz 5-5-5-15 @ 2.4v, now can barely run 999Mhz 5-5-5-15 @ 2.3v. Maybe time to break out the pencil.
