I fould this is this ture? do i need to find a 1.6v kit? Memory Compatibility As some sites have mentioned ahead of the Nehalem launch, officially the CPU supports DDR3 memory rated up to 1.6V. According to Intel, memory running at voltages higher than 1.6V can potentially damage the CPU. Most memory manufacturers have announced their own triple-channel Nehalem-ready memory kits ahead of today’s launch, we recommend anyone interested in building their own Nehalem system go with one of these kits. Intel will be providing a list of certified memory modules on their developer website as well that you’ll want to check out before purchasing anything. We opted to play it safe for now and stick with the stock memory voltage for all our Nehalem testing.
