Solved

Will these two work together??? Pleasde help.

this might be stupid question but a guy wants to sell these as they dont work with his cpu. so will....


G.SKILL DDR3 16GB (4 x 4GB) 2133 [RipjawsX] (PC3 17000)

work with

Intel Core i7 3930K Processor LGA2011 3.2GHz 12M Cache 6 Cores


i know they work with 2nd gen i7s but not sure if 3930k is 2nd gen

  1. buy quad channel memory, because it's SB-E
  2. so they wont work?
  3. this is there full specs


    •System: Desktop

    •System Type: DDR3

    •M/B Chipset: Intel Z68, Intel P67

    •CAS Latency: 11-11-11-30-2N

    •Capacity: 16GB (4GB x4)

    •Speed: DDR3-2133 (PC3 17000)

    •Test Voltage: 1.5 Volts

    •Height: 40 mm / 1.58 inch

    •Registered/Unbuffered: Unbuffered

    •Error Checking: Non-ECC

    •Type: 240-pin DIMM

    •Features: Intel XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) Certified
  4. you want a set of DIMMs which is selected for the Intel X79 chipset, not the Z68/P67 chipset as listed
  5. so they wont work
  6. They are matched for a dual channel system. They MAY work in a quad channel system but there is no guarantee. I suggest that you find a set of RAM that has been picked and constructed for a quad channel system.

    Hi there,

    U didn't specify the RAM model, but that series has high voltage for use with 3930K,

    as recommended RAM voltage 1.5V or less.

    Sandybridge-E tolerates 1.65V DIMMs
  9. OK, so does the SB, but it voids the warranty on SB..

    By any chance do u have any link that I can read about it?

    Some are using 1.65v RAM on the SB boards.

    It is preferred to use 1.35v-1.5v RAM.

    Here's my source

    http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/core/core-i7-lga-2011-datasheet-vol-1.html

    Page 60 shows the absolute min/max voltages, these were never released for SB and haven't been released for IB however I don't see them being much different for SB. Oddly enough they have VCore pegged at 1.4 max but a lot of people run over it.

    The 1.5V memory recommendation comes only from JEDEC specifications (page 61), not from Intel's internal engineering which supports up to 1.85V

    I've heard conflicting reports about going over 1.5V voiding warranty. There are a number of reports of chats with Intel reps claiming that it does, yet here's one transcript that claims it doesn't and that a warranty replacement would be issued so long as there's no physical damage to the CPU

    On the same note, all the XMP certified RAM is tested and validated by Intel prior to being certified with the trademark, which kind of implies that it's not going to break the processor
