Building a system that requires 32GB of ram because of the need to run a large number of virtual machines and suspend and resume them immediately.
Because it is powered from a battery that is charged from solar panels, and the cpu is only rated at 45W TDP including the gpu (i7-3770T), any ram type that saves some watts is welcome.
Hence 1.35V LoVo ram is being considered, instead of the standard 1.5V DDR3 1600MHz.
However, someone says 1.35V ram will slow down from 1600MHz to 1333MHz if you put two sticks on the same channel:http://www.dataram.com/blog/?p=102
Is this true? Is there any overclocking workaround?
32GB in 4 GB sticks of DDR3-1600MHz ram has to be installed on the two-channel-only motherboard below:http://www.supermicro.com/products/moth ... 9SAE-V.cfm
Can 1.35V ram run at the full 1600MHz with a little overclocking or whatever on the above motherboard?
