Sorry I'm still really new to all this and trying my best to troubleshoot my new rig issue please be patient. Related to this thread:

G.Skill Tech recommended nudging up the voltage on this RAM:

G.SKILL Ripjaws X + Turbulence II Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2200 (PC3 17600) Desktop Memory Model F3-17600CL9D-8GBXLD

above the 1.65V .05V at a time to see if I can get things stable. Is it correct that going a little above this isn't going to harm my CPU? What is the max safe limit?

It sounds like I also need to be... raising the QPI also? (CPU -> North Bridge voltage? is that right?) or something else? If someone could either give me the steps here on what I need to be doing or a link or three that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for not beating up the n00b
