What is the difference? I'm thinking about buying 2gigs more RAM since I only have 2gb right now, and I want the new ones to be the same. But I don't remember there being two models being identical except for one little specification (and a slight cost difference):

http://www.crucial.com/eu/store/partspecs.aspx?IMODULE=BL2KIT12864AL1065 - 2.2V (cheapest)

http://www.crucial.com/eu/store/partspecs.aspx?IMODULE=BL2KIT12864AL106A - 2.0V (8 more expensive).

Help me make the call please :confused:

Look I know I'm no expert, I can assemble a computer, overclock and know things in general on a need-to-know basis, I'm not a computer scientist or hardcore enthusiast liquid-gas overclocker dude who knows what every last specification on components means, so excuse my ignorance :)

The expensiver ones dont require as high a voltage to achieve the rate so they are better and will OC higher while not getting as hot would be my guess.

Stable at lower voltage = Good

Same here ,People asking me why their mobile internet dongle isn't working get angry when I say "How the **** should I know", Ive never used one so why would I know.
Still.... Installing the ****ing drivers and registering the things does help...

+1 go for the lower voltage.......voltage is our enemy in computing.

Some voltage is good though right?

right, but i believe voltage = heat.
Also, i dont think the component is meant to run at a higher voltage unless specified. The life of say a CPU can decrease.
