I'm going from 2x2gb sticks to 4x2gb sticks of RAM. Do i have to increase the dimm voltage or can i just pop them in problem free. I think i'm remembering that you have to increase it. Is this correct? and if so, by how much? currently its at 1.8v

I just run mine at the recommended settings and it works fine.

You shouldn't have to increase the voltage unless you are overclocking them. Just make sure they are at the correct recommended voltage they should be at in the BIOS.

You might want to increase MHC voltage a tad (memory host controller) as all 4 dims taken may put a bit of stress on the n bridge.
