- Universal 3.3V VDIMM Mod

Scared of volt modding? Most of us who've never performed such a task before naturally are, but looking at Phoronix's latest article on how to perform a VDIMM mod to your motherboard, it's quite simple indeed. What's more, the mod is said to work across all motherboards. If you've BH-5 ram in particular, you'd be in for a real treat with this!


In this guide, we will share with you how to perform a very simple Vdimm mod. Please note: Phoronix takes no responsibility for any damage or harm that can potentially occur from performing this mod. By default, conventional DDR SDRAM operates at 2.5V. Most motherboards max out the Vdimm voltage at 2.9V. Abit's AN7 and high-end DFI motherboards are just a few of the exceptions. However, most RAM modules can withstand voltages over 3.5V. To find out if your RAM can withstand such high voltages, simply visit the RAM chip manufacturer's site and look up the datasheet of the particular chip you are using.
