Default memory failure reason announced

http://www.guru3d.com/newsitem.php?id=5176

OK, see the link to this article.

I'm confused.

What do I set my RAM voltage to now?

Interesting. I wonder what brands of RAM may be effected by this. Need more info.

2.4V???? On DDR2??? That's madness!

Most people are in the clear if they don't jack up their ram voltage. Stock on my Corsair XMS2 800mhz is 2.1V, and it's been rock solid. I wouldn't dare push the voltage past that.

There's some very emotional threads at EVGA's support boards regarding memory, voltage, and the 680i board. I'm sure jakup or russianhaxor could fill you in as they've been quite busy there.

I run mine at 2.1V, which is the recommended voltage for 1066.

Bro, I dont think ANY 667 mhz ram requires 2.4 vdimm

What vdimm should you set them at? depends on how much you want to up your FSB speed... Try them at stock v, and then bump up if they fail stability.
