Memory voltage Dell Precision

Hi,
Someone gave me a Dell PrecisionT3500 with a Xeon E5520 processor and running the Intel X58 Express chipset. Technical guide said you could put up to 24gb of ram (1333 mhz), max 4gb per slot. I didn't look to much and I got the Kingston HyperX PC3 12800, that run at 1.65V. My system will boot, but following some reading I'm unsure if it may be problematic as Dell memory selector recommend 1.5v. I have no interest in overclocking and can even return the memory if need to be, I just want to make sure that this memory will be appropriate, stable and won't affect my processor. Thanks.

  1. Relax memory voltage will not affect your CPU. If it increses the performance, let it be. Notebook are very hard to mange cause their systems are so tight. Wish you luck!

    Also if its running at 1333 mzh I suspect its running at 1.5v it would only need the 1.65v if you enabled XMP to run at 1600 mhz.

    Yeah hes right
  4. So, without changing anything in my bios, it should by default go at 1.5V at a lower speed? Thanks for your help. Would it still be better to get a 1333mhz 1.5V or it will be the same thing?
