If you have any other system 1.65v RAM will be fine. geekapproved a b } Memory April 7, 2011 3:02:57 PM 1.65v is fine for Sandy Bridge but it's recommended you get 1.5v. Intel did this so that you can carry over the ram from your 1156 or 1366 system which required 1.65v ram. If your overclocking I would recommend against 1.65v ram though.
