Ram voltage

The ram i have is supposed to be 1.65 voltige thing,but in the bios it reads a lower voltage,not at home now so cant see exactly what the voltige is,but i know it is lower than 1.65.Now can i push it up to 1.65 or will that be bad or something for the board?

I guess you're using ASUS Probe for voltages?

For your mobo, I see some memory for 1.5v and the majority for 1.65v. If you memory is supposed to be 1.5v, I'd leave it. I'm not even sure I'd push the voltage up to 1.65 unless you started to get BSODs. Nothing bad would happen to the mobo.

Read this:

Kingston Launches First Low Voltage DDR3 at 1,600MHz - Softpedia

and verify what voltage your specific memory is supposed to run at. I'm not worried about your mobo, but it could be problems for your memory.

If it is not it will probably just bsod before Windows even loads. Then you can go and change it back to what it was. If you damage your ram I am not responsible.
