    Hello,

    If you take a look at the photo below than you can see the DRAM Voltage is at auto setting 1.585V. The Asrock program reports the same voltage for the ram. However the ram modules are specified to work at 1.5V.
    Is this a problem or is it oke? I am quite worried to see this. it is a new pc.

    If your sure the RAM is rated at 1.5v then yeah thats a bit high but it shouldnt hurt anything.

    If I were you Id set the ram voltage manually and set 1.51v or 1.52v

    Would this be Patriot RAM by any chance? They made a blunder earlier where they didn't rename a product but went from 1.65 to 1.6 or 1.5v. So even though their RAM was listed as 1.5v on newegg it was actually 1.6v listed on other sites, and the box said 1.65v!
