Are you able to change memory voltage on this board (or other elitegroup mobo's)? My ram cannot boot at 1600 if not at 1.65v and the mobo is only at 1.5.

Please provide your Mobo and Memory spec.

The mobo is in the title: ECS H61H2-I3

My ram is rated for 1600 mhz.

This isn't a capability issue. It's me not knowing the the bios and capabilities of this motherboard.

Your motherboard supports +1.5v RAM module. That is why you need +1.5v RAM, not +1.65v RAM.

We tested with Team DDR2133 4GB memory which requires 1.65V without any problem. If you want to change the memroy setting inside the BIOS, you can go to the M.I.B III page inside the BIOS. Change the Performance Memory Profiles to Manual. Then, you can adjust the memory setting.

There's no voltage option though, only timings and frequency. I can change my ram's freq to 1600 mhz, but it won't boot and I had to reset the cmos.

I don't see how you could have used a ram rated for 1.65v when this motherboard seems to only be capable of around ~1.5v. Unless of course, I'm missing something.

Please change the memory setting and set up to XMP Profile 1. Then, change the XMP Profile 1 in Performance Memory Profiles.

It says XMP profile not supported. I've had at least 6 motherboards in my life, and they all have something that says something similar to "RAM voltage", and I've had no trouble finding it in the bios. I just need confirmation of whether or not this mobo has any voltage control. This isn't that big of a deal, but I need to know whether or not to buy lower voltage ram.

What CPU do you have?

Here is from ECS website "Supports DDR3 1066/1333/1600(with Ivy Bridge)SDRAM".

i3 3225

edit: and as I said, I have no problem changing it to 1600, but the computer won't boot because it's not getting enough voltage

Based on the latest BIOS, there is no option to change the memory voltage. However, we don't see any problem to support DDR3 1600 memory which requires 1.65V.
