It transpires that it will be possible to separate CPU and memory voltages, equating to users being able to set individual voltages for the CPU and memory, rather than them being synchronised. DDR3 memory modules will therefore be able to power their way to higher speeds and voltages, without have a detrimental effect on the CPU itself.

 

We can expect to see upcoming solutions from the likes of ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI adopting such methods to make overclocking the Nehalem platform, that little bit easier.
