From what I've read, 1066' voltage normally runs above industry standard (1.8) - That standard applies to my motherboard, and this particular RAM is labeled as 1.8v
So, what do ya'll think?
I intend on upgrading to Windows 7 with this purchase as well -- And I'm just gonna start fresh, wipe my BIOS settings back to their defaults, and go for a nice clean install of this new(ish) spandangled Windows.
So far, this Gigabyte board has been a beast, but I'm having some issues as I start upgrading to newer components; mainly my GTX460, which has fist fights with my onboard GPU...
Well, since the GTX still is having issues with my motherboard, and now the previous vid card has the same problem:
My motherboard can't decide whether to use the on-board or not. I have no options in the BIOS to disable the on-board entirely.
When I boot up, it usually goes with the on-board. So once it boots up, I generally just reset it. Then see what happens. If the screen is blank when the VGA is plugged into the motherboard, I plug the VGA into the vid card -- And if the VGA in the vid card shows a blank screen I plug it into the motherboard. This problem also happens whenever the computer goes into HIBERNATION mode.
So far, when my computer boots with the GTX, it works beautifully.
I'm pretty sure my PCIe x16 slot is damaged in some way. It doesn't detect my GTX properly, nor does it detect my old 8600. Unless I reset it a few times (I don't need to power cycle, just reset and see if the onboard is on or the vid card).
