Hi guys, I want to ask you sth : when I built my pc a few months ago, I bought 2 sticks of DDR3 1600 RAM from Kingston for a core i5 machine, but I didn't look at the voltages when I bought them. Apparently, they were meant for AMD systems (1.7-1.9 volts powering them). Now, BIOS and CPU-Z show me they are clocked at 1333 mhz instead of 1600, and run at 1.5 V.
Does this mean they underclocked themselves in order to work at 1.5 V? And is this ok? I mean, I don't see any difference. The system works great, but I'm concerned for their future.
And another question: is it OK if I fiddle around with the timings? Now it's running 9-9-9-24. I understand that increasing the mhz won't make too much of a difference, but lowering the timings will. Is this right? And is this doable ?
