For the new computer I'm going to build I'm getting a gigabyte mobo with corsair ram. The ram's timings are 4-4-4-12 and the voltage is 2.1. The mobo says that it only supports RAM that's JEDEC 1.8v operations with timings of 5-5-5 or 6-6-6. So i was wondering if my ram would work, and how you would find out if the ram is JEDEC approved. And if it won't work are 4-4-4 timings a lot faster or is not a big difference and is the 2.1v a big difference to 1.8v.

I have even used the corsair value select on a gigabyte core 2 duo motherboard and it worked flawlessly. Look into the corsair xms2 memory with 5-5-5 timings if it gives you any problems at all you can adjust the voltage of the memory within the bios its really easy. The corsair 5-5-5 timings is what I would get.

The voltage doesnt do a difference at all in stock memory speed of ram.. More voltage can allow better overclocking though by the memory.

The difference between the 4-4-4 and 5-5-5 timing memory is small you cannot tell the difference with your eye... You just need to stick with what is KNOWN to work and is compatible. That memory I told you about above WORKS.
