    I think I jumped the gun buying a new mb/cpu/ram and picked up 4 gigs of Patriot Sector 5 memory but I'm reading the new sandy bridge's need 1.5v ram? The memory I picked up is 1.65:shadedshu Can I still use this and maybe try to undervolt it? Or should I just send it back and get the correct voltage memory? Just don't want to fry my new setup;)

    Thanks

    No need to worry, it is simply saying that the memory is rated at that particular speed @ 1.65V, it should default to 1.5V and then you can play with speeds, timings and voltages from there.

    Cool, I was hoping I didn't have to send it back. Thanks

    You were correct about it;) It's running fine at 1.5v@7-7-7-20 at 532mhz(Default)
    Haven't meesed with the timings yet but my wei is 7.5 so I guess it's running pretty good already.

    Thanks again for the help
