  1. Hey all,

    Quick question for you all, does a 1Gb stick of ram @ 2,4,4,6 timings need a higher voltage level than a 256Mb stick also @ 2,4,4,6 timings ???

    Cause im thinking of adding some additional ram to my system but I just need to make sure the new larger 2 x 1Gb sticks aren't going to need a higher voltage level than the current sticks I have in there now.
    The new ram is the same speed (400Mhz) and brand (Corsair) as the current ram, it's also DDR SDRAM, and is a matched pair for dual channel use, just like the current ram I have in there already. It's just the size's that are different.

    Cheers, Dayus
