Hi all.
Im thinking of buying this kit for a new intel duo system:
CellShock DDR2 800 (PC6400) 2X1GB (not the V2 series)

I see that the voltage is a bit high 2.2 isnt it?
Is that a disadvantage? I mean all mobos support this voltage or if i buy this i will have to carefully choose the mobo?
Thank you :)
 


Generally, micro boards will not have the more powerful 8-phase, etc. voltage regulators full ATX MB's have and will not have the upward voltage ability of a mainstream full ATX MB. It is possible to have a MB that will not support the RAM you mentioned due to it's 2.2v voltage requirements. Stay with a premium full ATX mainstream MB with 'phased' voltage regulators and you won't have a problem.

Thanks for the reply.
The truth is i dont have a clue about "8-phase" and what you said :(
I intend to buy a cheap MB.
I dont know yet.Ill ask in the forum.
I just want 4 DDR2 slots,quad core support and dont care for 2 vgas.
Ill just get a 800GTS 320MB.
Thats all.
Any suggestions?Will i find what i want and support the 2.2 Volts?
 


Micro boards have less overclocking capability and that can include memory voltage adjsutment. Generally, companies like ASUS or Gigabye provide plentiful overclocking options in BIOS with their premium ATX MBs.
