    Had Bios 1.1 B06. My DDR2 was coming up volted at 2.0V. The voltage
    monitor also showed it as running with 2.0V. Flashed bios 1.3. Now my
    DDR2 is coming up at 1.8V. I wonder if it's actually 1.8 or if it's
    misreported. Not sure what to trust at this point. This is Crucial
    Ballistix DDR2 which is supposed to run at 2.2. It works fine at
    1.8...........

    Right.

    > The voltage monitor also showed it as running with 2.0V.


    Right.

    Right. That's because uGuru has reset as a result of the flash, and your
    vDDR2 is now back at default.

    > I wonder if it's actually 1.8 or if it's misreported.


    It's correct.

    > Not sure what to trust at this point.


    Trust nobody. Didn't you watch the X Files?

    > This is Crucial Ballistix DDR2 which is supposed to run at 2.2.


    It's not "supposed" to run at 2.2, that's the maximum recommended voltage.
    Different thing altogether.

    > It works fine at 1.8...........


    So leave it there then. No point feeding it any more than it needs to be
    stable.
