To ask this is a 'newbie' way, "What is better"?

Low voltage RAM produces less heat and consumes less energy.

While overclocking, what are you looking to do, lower or increase the RAM's voltage? You want to increase it, so you could clock your RAM's frequency higher and have it working at a greater speed, as far as I know.

Anyone wanting to confirm or elaborate will be appreciated. Should you go with the 1.2V or 1.35V RAM?

Cheers.

Doesn't really matter, all DDR4 start with 1.2v at base frequency and goes up to 1.35 and higher with higher frequency, All are good to 1.5v and even higher anyway.

Overclocking is all about more power and Voltage, for higher frequency or lower timings, while keeping the system cool and within temp range. The result is a stable and reliable extreme performance computer. 1.20V and low Voltage kits are generally standard spec for plug and play systems that do not require BIOS adjustments or XMP Profile. So assuming you have an aftermarket motherboard and CPU that can support XMP Profile or above standard specs, 1.35V+ is what you want in a performance memory kit.

There was DDR3 with low and high voltage but there's no such things as 1.2 or 1.35v DDR4, they all start low and have to switch to higher voltage at certain higher frequencies. Obviously low speed DDR4 will run at 1.2v.
