Power usage differences between SO-DIMM 1,35v and 1,5v dual channel modules

Hi All,

 

Does anyone know what is the difference in power usage between 1,35v and 1,5v dual channel memory kits?

 

I am interested in buying this kit http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/partspecs.aspx?IMODULE=CT2KIT102464BF1339 but I don't know if it's worth to pay more for 1,35v modules?

 

Thank for help.

0.15V difference  :smileywink: :smileyvery-happy:

 

J/K - I know what you mean, but sorry I'm not really sure how much that would correlate into battery usage.  The difference is not likely to be very much though as memory probably doesn't draw that much wattage anyway.

 

How much is the $$ difference between the two kits you are looking at?  And is the kit listed as compatible with your board?  Some boards or BIOSes may not have a setting for 1.35V, or auto may not adjust that low on some, so be sure it's listed compatible before you decide which to get.
