Running ddr 2 ram at 2.1v ?
I was wondering is it alright to run ddr2 ram at 2.1volts, My ram is kinda limiting my Oc so I was wondering if it'd be alright to up the voltage for higher frequencies.
I am sure its teh ram thats limiting my OC.WE LIVE TO DIE ONE DAY !! LIFES SHORT LIVE IT UP :D

Running 2.1v on DDR2 shouldn't kill it, provided you have some active cooling (a little fan rigged to blow directly on the memory). I'd give it a try. Some RAM reacts well to voltage, but some won't see any benefit.
Is the RAM running 1:1 with the FSB? If not what's the divider?What computer do you have? And please don't say a white one. - Sheldon Cooper

shouldn't be a problem, have my ram at 2.1 volts for ages [ ddr2 OCZ ]
have you up your CPU volts?

Yeah my cpu volts are up.
Teh sad thing is the ECS p45 ta wont lemme up the NB voltage, but given that this board can handle 425 that shouldnt be a problem. ITs the ram,
The rams have heatsinks on them and I also am using TT frio as my heatsink, my cpu temp is 28 @ idle and 40c @ load @ 3ghz @ 1.35 vcore.
My ram is Walton chaintec Apogee ram, 800MHZ cl5 timings, these have some nice heatsinks on themWE LIVE TO DIE ONE DAY !! LIFES SHORT LIVE IT UP :D

The divider is 4:5, unfortunately there isnt a 1:1 with this board x(WE LIVE TO DIE ONE DAY !! LIFES SHORT LIVE IT UP :D
