I have GigaByte 8I955 Royal which specs 1.8 volt for the ram.

When I went to Newegg.com's memory configuration tool, it comes back with all different voltage rams for me range from 1.8 1.9 to 2.1 volt.

Can I use higher volt ram in my motherboard?

Your help is appreciated!

You need to check QVL of compatible ram for your motherboard.
1.8v is the motherboard default ram voltage, check in bios to see if you have the option to change the ram voltage.
If you don't have the correct voltage for the ram you will run into booting problems

Go to crucial's site and input your mb. It will show compatible ram AND guaranty it will work.

Yes, the vdimm or ram voltage does matter. If you have high performance ram, it often does not run well at stock [1.8V]

I'll second that one. I don't always buy from Crucial, but they have good intel.(y)
