    Z270E Low DRAM Voltage Readings

    So I have a 7700k, Z270E (lastest 1009 bios) and some G. Skill F4-3200C16D-16GTZR which is rated at 1.35v.

    I'm using XMP which auto set the dram voltage to 1.3596v, but the bios and HWinfo report it's only getting 1.328 which seems kinda on the low side.

    The only way I can increase the dram voltage from 1.328 is to manually set it to 1.37v in the bios and even then it only bumps it up to 1.344v. Can't seem to get it to it's rated 1.35. I haven't really noticed any stability issues etc.

    I think I might be missing something here or is the Z270E lenient on the voltages?

    It's normal that the voltage varies a little. Personally, I don't pay any attention to it.

    Ditto, I raised DRAM voltage to 1.37v/1.38v in BIOS to get 1.35v reading from HWInfo/Bios-readings as well.

    Honestly I wouldn't worry too much, DDR4 RAM sticks are safe to run with under 1.4v. In case something does go wrong before you switch to a board that only supports DDR5 RAM keep in mind that G. Skill provides a limited lifetime (as in, product lifetime) warranty for those RAM modules, so it's not like it'll cost you big time if they fail 4 years down the road and you're still stuck on a DDR4 system.
