SPD Voltage vs Tested Voltage

I'm looking to buy Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 1600MHz CL10 DIMMs (CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10) for my rig.
Speed Rating PC3-12800 (1600MHz)

Tested Voltage 1.5 - SPD Voltage 1.5
Tested Speed 1600Mhz - SPD Speed 1333Mhz
Tested Latency 10-10-10-27 - SPD Latency 9-9-9-24

What voltage, speed, and latency will the kit run at by default?

    So if I want it to run at 1600, I have to overclock it? Why do they give it a speed rating and advertise as 1600?
  3. becuase 1333 at 1.5 volts is the max speed that intel says will run on a sb cpu. the ib have a slightly better memory controller.
  4. It is not overclocking since it is rated at 1600MHz, you just have to set the speed manually!

    So if I set it to 1600MHz than it should stay at 1.5V? Will the latency adjust to 10-10-10-27 automatically?
  6. No you would have to adjust the latency!

    Hi,
    Depending on what mobo you have and BIOS, what you do is in the BIOS setup meny find the settings for the memory and activate the memory XMP profile.

    The system will then use the memory's inbuilt XMP profile and it will run @1600MHz
