CMOS power consumption is voltage squared, though. So that's 20% power savings! think of all the power you saved!ive been running my DDR4 at the wrong voltage for like 3 years
I never could get it to hit spec (pc4-3200) so i was running it at 3000. Was fine really.
Recently i started getting IRQL errors, which is almost always a bad ram stick so i thought id go into bios and bump the voltage a bit on the ram to see if i could make it behave. 1.2 is standard DDR4 voltage and it was running it at that, so i bumped it to 1.25 then googled to see what other folks were running theirs at safely.
This specific ram kit assumes a default voltage of 1.35...... ive been undervolting it by a LOT for years. Im actually surprised it ran at all with a 12% undervolt.
