View Full Version : Vdimm running @ 3.58 without tweaking ??
12-03-04, 10:19 PM
I have checked my BIOS and it is set at default (DIMM Voltage Control) which is: 2.6. However once in windows, I start up Hardware Doctor (came with the mobo) and it is beyond the default threshold already! It says the DIMM voltage is 3.58 or so.
I am a bit new to this, but isn't the default voltage for my RAM supposed to be around 2.6, 2.7?

The HD read wrong, cant be ~3.6V.

Never trust windows stuff to be 100% accurate. A DMM is always the best route.

Thx guys, like you all are saying, it is pretty obvious Windows apps are reporting it wrong for some reason or another.
I originally had my ocz's running at default volts (2.6) and machine rebooted intermittantly. Being new, I didn't realize I needed to bump it up to 2.8 which they need to start with (I haven't owned such high-end mem before) . I kinda thought the BIOS would recognize that, and feed the mem what it needed (when it was on auto) That's ok though.
After changing to 2.8 (in the BIOS), running like a champ.
