2.1 - 2.2 v

I doubt you will achieve 1066 unless you got a batch of ram that used micron ICs.



I would probably sugest you get a pair of dominators instead...

Well, 2.1v is the default voltage for it. I have noticed that at 2.2v (I need 2.2 to run at 900mhz) the RAM gets really REALLY hot. What Im planning to do is to buy the Dominator Fan so they can stay somehow cool. But as I said, will something like 2.3v or 2.4v be dangerous for the RAM?

I used to have Micron, but since I found out later on that 1 stick was bad, I had to RMA, unforunately, they sent me some proMOS sticks which are fine, but I would have liked Micron.

Noway Im getting dominators, way overpriced and I think what I have now will be enough for a long time. Maybe upgrade to 2Gb soon might be a nice idea.

Well I said I would like to run 1000mhz but I see that kinda impossible.

Anyways, it also depends on my CPU overclock. I want it to stay in 1:1 ratio.

2.1 is stock voltage for Corsair XMS2 ram?
wow? Does that mean if I bump up +0.4V at my BIOS, my ram will be running at 2.5V ?????

I'm currently using XMS2 PC5400 667Mhz RAM....

Copied direct from Corsair on the product page... I have run mine up to 2.3V testing, but stick now with 2.15volts running it at 334MHz

But that doesnt tell which revision, they probably used Micron revision which is 1.0

There are like 5 revisions 1.1,1.2,1.3,1.4,2.1,2.4 and most of them come with proMOS.

That quote above is for the PC8500 Micron based memory which is tested at 2.2v. For all of our PC6400 memory (EXCEPT the C3 versions) the maximum rated voltage is 2.1v.
