Quick fix, voltages and saving you rma time.
« on: February 17, 2015, 04:22:10 PM »
Very often people send me rma requests for stability issues even in brand new hardware.

Quick rule of thumb if your using more than one dim of ram a minor ram voltage bump can work magic on your system. Going from 1.65 or 1.35 to 1.66 or 1.36 can solve a good sum of issues.

Same wIth cpus bumping them up just slightly can be the difference from a bsod and a happy rig.

all voltage bumps should be done in the bios and stress tested after.

Thank you

Same could be said about graphics cards too. I had one that was unstable at default settings, but a slight bump in voltage fixed its stability issues.

This is a very good point from Arinoth.

Also as you put more components onto the system you can get dirty power or unstable power that is dropping below the required minimum for hardware, as more components are added slight voltage increases can resolve issues majorly.

Or a bios mod to push more current like my favorite way of addressing throttling issues on the 280x.
