hmm, it seems through my research i was getting that alot, but at the same time the upper limit is around 1.8v for the cpu. i figured i'd be in the clear as im using a huge cooler and this was the specs i wanted in ram (just went with the voltage as it was my impression it would still work) and it fit under the frio ock.


so yeah, i kind of agree with what you say, but at the same time i have seen posts on intel's website stating yes it will work (in a faq if i remember right) and i've seen posts where it wont work. perhaps i need to reorder the ram?


i believe if nothing else the ram will underclock just a tad bit, and will last long enough for me to order a replacement set if anything seems to go wrong?
