Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H ddr2933 OC dram voltage?

Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H ddr2933 OC dram voltage?


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I've decided to buy this board. At $130 it's a no brainer where as the Asus Pro costs $190.

Planning to throw a i5 4670k on it. with a Noctua NH-D14 HS

I took a look at the specs and it says memory voltage at 1.5v.

Does anyone know if bios dram voltage options go higher than 1.5v? I want to buy 1.6v memory modules...

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 2133MHz CL9 Dual Channel Kit (F3-2133C9D-16GXH)


What are all the dram bios voltage options?

Thanks in advance.

  1. Best answer
    Yes it's take DRAM up to 3000 and voltage wise up to 1.65 (though don't buy 1.65 if 1866 or under, stick w/ 1.5 sticks on those freqs)
  2. so I'm safe to pump 1.6v on that board? 1.6v at 2133mhz....probably can turn voltage down to 1.5 if Im' going to run that ram at 1866mhz?

    Also, is there that big a difference btwn CL9 and CL10? for overclocking...not max OC just mid range to high

    thank you
  3. Want the lowest CL you can get at the spec freq you go with say (2133/9, 2400/10) thet'll allow some OC room, the RJ X you're looking at should go 2400 w/ CL10, have used a number of those sets
  4. well my other option unfortunately is a 1866 cl10's, based on what is in stock, I want to get the cl9's at 1866 but they are also back ordered...both modules are at 1.5v though which stays within the mobo specs

    G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1866MHz CL10 Dual Channel Kit (F3-14900CL10D-16GBXL)

    I know the sweet spot for haswell seems to be 1600mhz anyway?
  5. Haswell, is great w/ DRAM, far better than SB or IB, I've got a little over 20 Haswell builds and 1866 has been the lowest I've built (2), 2133 is the preferred and the higher end folks mainly go 2400-2800, I've got 2666 in mine
