Now the problem i have is the board has a recommended DIMM socket voltage of only 1.5V and the RAM that i have ordered is 1.65V, my friends system works great with the same 2 components but i just don't want to have any problems so i though i would come to you guys for help. Will the RAM i have ordered still work in my system or will i have to buy new RAM? Can i mess with the voltage to make things work stably or would that not be a wise thing to do?
All help would be much appreciated, thanks, Camron.
You're probably fine. If your board allows it you might try undervolting it a little in case you are worried. From what I've heard, 1.65v is the max safe ram voltage for sandy/ivy bridge systems. Reading through the motherboard's supported ram list also shows several supported models listed @1.65v.
