      do you think these G.Skill RAM would be compatible with the DH67CF mainboard?

          Cov - The DH67CF board supports DDR3 1333MHZ and DDR3 1066MHZ memory and 1.5v. Intel states if you operate outside these specs you can void your warranty. Here is the link http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dh67cf/sb/CS-031961.htm?wapkw=(DH67CF).  Also, the link you provided to G. Skill does not show the DH67CF board to be on the qualified motherboard list for the G.Skill memory you cite. Regards. Peter

            Hi Peter,

             

            I thought faster RAM modules than the supported ones would be downwards compatible.

            However, 1.5V seems to be the saver option. What a pitty because 1.25V would have been nice though.

            Regarding the list of qualified RAM for that model of motherboard, I opened a thread a few months ago at the G.Skill Forum, and an Admin called Trademan answered that any RAM might work with any chipset. Just because it's not mentioned in the list of supported RAM doesn't mean necessarily that it doesn't work.

             

            Think I stick with my G.Skill NT Series 1.5V RAM then.

            Thanks for your help, Peter.
