What is the normal operating voltage for the ram you have installed? Matter of fact would you post brand name and model of the ram you have?

^ Brand and model would be more helpful.

Or you can remove the RAM and physically look at the label to see what the normal voltage is for your stick(s).

You shouldn't be running ECC RAM in a system without having a Xeon. Your RAM will be 1.5v or 1.65v. You won't damage your system, it'll just be unstable. You need to read up and understand the basic fundamentals of your system before you attempt overclocking. You'll also need a good cooler.

Your pic didn't show because you don't have enough posts yet.

Please post the brand name and the model you have.

Sorry I misread that, I thought it said you wanted to overclock.

Just set your RAM voltage to 1.5v and see what it does. Most all ECC DDR3 is 1.5v.
