you probably shouldnt push it past 1.6v-1.65v if you want it to remain stable

Thought increasing the voltage would make it more stable.

Voltage scaling limit depends mostly on used ICs and not on the specific model or platform.
Some ICs scale well up to 2.3V, some don't like anything above 1.50.

Integrated circuit. Most cheap RAM will knock out if you raise the voltage too high, simply can't handle it. The circuit can burn out.

But most Corsair RAM is built pretty solid, I wouldn't go over 1.6.
