Re: Memory Voltage/From Kingston Spec Sheet


I'm not enrirely sure what all this means but from Kingston's spec sheet for a HyperX Red KHX16C9B1R/4 4GB Memory Module:

"This module has been tested to run at DDR3-1600 at a low latency timing of 9-9-9 at 1.65V. The SPD is programmed to JEDEC standard latency DDR3-1333 timing of 9-9-9 at 1.5V. This 240-pin DIMM uses gold contact fingers and requires +1.5V."

So, Bob Collette got it right. It looks like they up the standard voltage to get the higher speed.
