Possible graphics card failure -- update

    I posted here with a problem with my PC a few weeks ago. I'm now in a
    position to actually try and fix it. I have ordered a new motherboard
    from eBuyer; just a cheapie with Intel integrated graphics (which will
    also be useful for eliminating the graphics card as the cause of the
    strange behaviour - random blue screens, lockups, no display/POST
    etc).

    I've noticed however that the 2 x 2Gb sticks of Kingston HyperX DDR2
    that I have in the PC at the moment have 2.0 volts written on them.
    The specs for the new motherboard state that it supports 1.8v memory
    modules. That being said, the specs for the old (probably faulty)
    motherboard also state 1.8v and it used to work perfectly with this
    RAM.

    What are the chances of the memory working OK in the new board? The
    new board is the same make (MSI) as the old one.... yes, I'm a glutten
    for punishment!

  2. It'll be fine. HyperX is branded as overclock-friendly, so it'll
    survive 2V, but will operate at normal speeds at 1.8V.
