I want to buy this motherboard and used it with components already I have

https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/B150M-C-D3/

 

But in the "Specifications" tab, in Memory section says:

 

* To prevent system instability, either install DDR3L DIMMs or DDR3 DIMMs with voltage lower than 1.5V.

 

This means I can't install a 1.5v RAM in this motherboard? or it's just a recommendation.

 

Sorry for my bad English and thanks in advance for you help  :)

Never tryed but i would my self, if you need to run the ram at a lower voltage with ram made for 1.5V just slow it down and drop your speed and settings and do it all maual, might work.

 

Hardly worth it anyways seeing as ram is so cheap, id just sell the old ram off and get the ram you need.

How mouch of the old ram you got anyways from your old system ?

My old system had 8GB DDR3, I just want to avoid spend more money but I will follow the advice in the Reddit post which hamluis shared and get DDR4 RAM and Gigabyte GA-H110M-S2HP

Well...when in doubt...I believe in trying whatever it is that I am dubious about.  The results may be more pleasant than expected...and the alternative path to pursue would be clear.
