Will this affect anything? Regards More about : ram higher voltage previous zdbc13 a b D Laptop December 27, 2012 12:02:00 PM Depending on your CPU/motherboard it could be very bad. You should stick with 1.5v. duplaimp December 27, 2012 12:13:56 PM But in CPU-Z in SPD it shows 1.8v for the old dimm (but if I google about the old dimm it says 1.5v in the specs sheet). It also (in cpu-z) shows 1.8v to the new one.. Any idea why it is like that? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
