Ok so i'm running on 2 sticks of Corsair Value Select RAM (had a real tight budget when i bought my current rig, saving up for a 990XA-UD3 build now biggrin.gif).

One's a 4 gig stick and the other's a 2 gig. What's the max voltage the sticks can handle? I've heard that for the price they're beastly little overclockers (all the way up to 1800 Mhz @ 7-9-7-20!! - http://www.erodov.com/forums/corsair-value-select-ddr3-ram-review/40026.html)

The currently i'm running the CPU on stock with the RAM running @ 1600 Mhz (manually changed the clocks in the Bios) at 9-9-9-24. The moment i tighten the timings to say 8-8-8-20, the computer crashes. With the Processor OC'd 3.5 Ghz (really don't wanna push it beyond that till i get a better board) and the RAM set to 667 Mhz in the BIOS, it boots up @ 1540 Mhz (give or take 20 Mhz) 9-9-9-24. Now when i manually change the RAM clocks to 800 Mhz and keep the processor at 3.5 Ghz, the computer doesn't POST. With the settings on auto and the processor
@ 3.5 Ghz, the sticks boot @ 1264 Mhz 8-8-8-20 frown.gif.

So a little help here guys. Wanna get the most outta these little suckers for now. Need the highest possible clocks with the timings as tight as possible. How would i go about it? The dude in the link i posted got it running @ 1800 Mhz 7-9-7-20 biggrin.gif

Also, what's the max voltage i can apply to the sticks and be on the safe side?

In the link you provided it shows that you can run the rem at 1.5v

1.5v is the stock voltage the sticks run at by default. I meant the max permissible volts. How should i got about taking the sticks into overdrive?

You may have a real issue with OC'ing two different DIMMs. If the RAM is not rated at a higher voltage than 1.5v then you should not go higher then ~1.65v if you want to try OC'ing as you could damage the RAM.
