As mentioned in an earlier thread
I mentioned I would be building a rig shortly. This is the 2nd in a series of questions.
I plan on doing some OCing of the CPU - nothing "extreme"...BUT...depending on the speeds/temps I'm reaching with basic OCing techniques, I may try to adjust the CPU voltage (mainly to say I've done it).
Which got me wondering about RAM. Most RAM comes in one of 3 flavors: 1.35V
. Since I am not well versed in volts, amps, watts and everything else electrical, I have some questions that I hope some of our OCers can help.
- If I adjust the CPU voltage during the OC, will that impact the RAM? More importantly, will I have to adjust the voltage on the RAM?
- Does higher voltage rated RAM provide additional headroom in OCing, or am I mixing up terminology? For example, could I OC 1.65V RAM higher than 1.5V RAM because the former is rated at 1.65V (therefore, it can achieve a higher voltage status)?
If anyone knows of a good, easy-to-understand website that provides some background on voltage and spells out the different RAM voltages and their differences, I would love to look at it.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
