Mushkin

I recently purchased some Mushkin RAM and saw that it is not on the authorized vendors list for RAM for my motherboard. Will it still work fine with XMP settings?

    I see no reason it wouldn't be fine, with DDR3-1600 CAS 8-8-8-24-2N @ 1.50v you might need to raise the VCCIO to 1.15~1.20v. Otherwise, it's a nice kit! :)

    Thanks! And just one other quick question I hope you can answer, why would I need to change the VCCIO from the default 1.05v?
  6. Anything 'Pink' or lower is high performance and often is 'taxing' on the CPU's IMC and to reduce errors raising the VCCIO to 1.15~1.20v is a good idea. More than likely the XMP profile will raise the VCCIO, so I'm giving you a heads-up. :)

    RAM's 'speed' is a function of Frequency, CAS Timings and the CPU's IMC. I need to update through DDR3-2600...
