The mobo is supposed to support DDR3 800, 1066, 1333, and 1600(oc) memory at 1.5v. The memory I have is 1.8v. I am under the impression that the ram will default to 1333MHz@1.5v, and I will have to set it to 1600MHz (if I want that speed, which I do if possible). When I set it to 1600, I assume this means raising the voltage to 1.8. However in doing that, will any of the components be at risk?
I don't know why the specifications of that board say only 1.5v. AMD processors don't have a problem with high voltage RAM, it's the Intel memory controller that is a picky little *****. I honestly don't think that it will harm anything to set it at 1.8v, but maybe try stepping up the voltage in small increments and see if it shows any abnormality.
