Memory undervoltage possible solution?

Hello everyone. I have a friend with a memory module kingston ddr-400 2.6 v 1 GB - KVR400X64C3A/1G with chips Elpida that won't work on his computer (BSODS, applications crashs). So I tested it on my mobo and initially the same instability problems happened. With default settings, it was running @ 2.7 v. Setting to 2.6v didn't help, but with 2.5v everything is stable. Tested with Gold memory and memtest, no errors. Looking at the sensor, the voltage fluctuates very little(2.50 - 2.51 v). Do you think it's safe to keep the module for me(even though it's rated at 2.6 v)?

  1. 2.5v certainly is safer than 2.7v. On the other hand, it should also work at the rated 2.6v.
  2. Yeah, this module is pretty strange. I guess I won't keep it. Thanks a lot for the answer.
  3. You could RMA it if it has a lifetime warranty.
