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 sourcehttp://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 CPUhttp://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?p=21766328
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
