  1. Hey people,

    I'm going to university shortly and after a time I'll have to get a place where I'll pay a power bill - including my rigs consumption. Money won't be that available during these times so I don't want to much power consumption.

    I was told for my computer science degree we'll be using VM's etc so alot of RAM will definatly help. I was thinking of upgrading to http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/partspecs.aspx?IMODULE=CT2KIT25664AA1067

    I won't be overclocking. If you tell me the power of those modules will consume in watts please specify if your telling me about one or both together. Thank you! :)

    If they consume to much I'll go without otherwise i'll upgrade.

    Base voltage for DDR2 modules is 1.8v. Some require additional voltage but the ones you linked use 1.8v per module.

    watts = amps x volts
