Would 1.65 volt be fine running on sandy bridge or would I need to lower the voltage and speed? Rep for some help.
It should come with the JEDEC standard 1.5V for speeds up to 1066. For 1333 and 1600 I think this Kingston stuff requires 1.65v. I have some cheaper 1600 2x4GB Kingston sets that run this way - can't say for certain whether or not 1333 has SMP data set at 1.5V or 1.65V - of course you could always manually tweak it in most Mobos unless BIOS limited like in some Dells.
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” - Senator Barack Obama
just in case anyone's wondering, I have this same ram in my SandyBridge build and I had to underclock it down to 1.6v for stability. At the stock 1.65v my machine would randomly shut it self off.
i strongly recommend active cooling for this ram or any other high speed ddr3 kit. They get very hot under load and especially running at 1600. I have 24gb of the 8gb kit (3 kits) running in my server and without active cooling it would reboot running prime95 or memtest. After getting a ram fan things are rock solid
