Yes you can. Any DDRII RAM can function at 1.8v.
Every memory module has profiles written into it, this allows it to function at various speeds and voltages, and 1.8v is the default voltage for DDRII.

Voltages above 1.8v are used for overclocking, to take full advantage of high speed DDRII memory you should manually set the voltage and frequency in your motherboards BIOS (accessed by pressing DEL or F1 during boot), if your motherboard does not have options to set these parameters manualy then your memory will function at the default speed and voltage

Hope this helps!

Gigabyte ga-ep45-ud3p (REV.1.6) motherboard


If this is a new install, make sure the board is grounded to the base with the standoff post. If you do not tighten your screws or miss these standoff, your system will short and not power up.

Good Luck

Ep45-ud3l dead socket??

Just to make sure go back through and remove everything not needed as a startup boot. Just put one stick of ram and make sure it is seated, nothing extra...just video card if not integrated, mouse and keyboard. tap the key that gets you into the BIOS and make sure that the HDD has been "initialized" prior to trying the first time boot. If it is a new drive, there is a disc for initializing the drive. Good luck

Motherboard compatibility

If you want to replace the mobo always compare the cpu-slot and the memory slots.
Tok a fast look on both of the mobos and both supports same cpu, both supports same memosticks though the the one you have supports ddr2 667mgz and the new one you found supports ddr2 1333+mhz. So you can use it but you may have to buy faster memosticks if you want to use the full power of it.

Here is the support site for the new one:

On that site you will also find all the drivers you may need if you buy it

And here is the support site for the mobo you have:

Now you can compare yourself if you want.
BTW, that GA-EP45-DS3 is a very good mobo

Good luck to you
Please take a moment and rate my help for you
