Re: Memory Voltage
In reply to Robert Schoner, Apr 21, 2013

1.5V is the standard memory voltage. Memory controllers are fairly flexible and will be able to handle 1.65V just fine as well. 1.65V allows for memory to run at higher frequencies or lower latencies. However, these things have almost no measurable effect on overall performance, so there's very little point to using 1.65V memory.

So just stick with 1.5V, which is the official specification and saves you some power (though it's very little, well below 1W).
