What comes to frequency, voltage and timings, the specifications of the 32 GB version fully match those of its smaller brothers. Now that there is also a huge capacity thrown into the mix, one has to make sure that their platform (more precisely, the memory controller inside the CPU) can handle the extra load. For example, we do not know many Socket 2011 or AM3+ processors capable of running at DDR3-2400 fully stable, let alone with four modules 8 GB each. Even some of the Ivy Bridge users might experience instability induced by the setup rather than the memory.
