Safe "long term" voltage for ddr4

Sat1600
 Share

System specs:

Msi Z170A pro mate

I5 6500(non k)

XFX rx 580 8gb

Corsair TX550m

Patriot - Signature Line 16GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2133

 

I copied settings from a youtube video:

14-15-15-40. 1.25v. I got it running stable at 2533 mhz with 0 fuss .(2666 didn't boot). It's been running that way forever.

 

I was thinking of trying to go higher. (For no reason at all). I know some people go as high as 1.45 v. That seems really high to me. I don't plan in changing anything soon and I want to keep my ram healthy for a long time. What's a safe long term voltage?

 

Also is there a point in doing this? Im trying to decide between "if it ain't broke don't fix it" and "it's free performance, why not"

never ever ever, take ur ram above 1.35

Plus ram speeds of that small increments wont make much of a difference

Does this ram support XMP profile? If yes then leave it there and it is just fine!

Would 1.35 be safe long term. It will probably be a few years before I change my system

About 3-4 years, ya it will do you good but the amount of overclocking you are doing won't make much of a difference.

Those look like the cheapest DDR4 sticks on the market and you already took them 400MHz above stock clocks. I'd personally be happy with that, or even 2400 for that matter.

No xmp.

Yeah your right. I just felt like tinkering with something. I should just leave well enough alone

Lol this isn't accurate at all.  

 

Depending on RAM sticks you can go up to 1.5V on something like Samsung b-die.  Chips built on smaller processes probably shouldn't go as high, but can still go into the 1.4V range.
