the site I ordered my corsair ddr2 pc-6400 (4gb) RAM from, said it was 1.8v...it arrived today and is 1.9v ...

on the product info, here: http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=K9A... it says the board only may have problems with RAM that's not 1.8v...will I have any problems using this RAM with this board?

My motherboard arrives tomorrow and is the final piece I need to put my computer together, and want to know ASAP if the RAM will be a problem so I can go buy a different kind...


THANKs!

You will be fine Rodyrodypiper. Use one DIMM to boot into BIOS and set the RAM voltage to 1.9-2.0v. Adust the timings and transfer rate while your there doing the atomic drop. Then shut down and add the second DIMM and you are all set. Can the Bruiser answer any more questions for you? :lol:

If you do have issues, you should be able to exchange the memory for a set that is rated at 1.8v. Does your MOBO allow you to adjust the memory voltage?
