2.15v is the max for that ram. 2.9v will fry it fast.
You should not need more voltage till the ram is over 1066.

i wouldnt go much higher than 2.4v for regular use.. a lot of those sticks used Micron GMH.. which isnt that robust against high volts unless cold. Probably have good results running ~2.25v for daily .. with 5-5-5-12 timings

It's awkward that you even need more than 1.8V to maintain generic/JEDEC base settings with DDR2-800 at 6-6-6 timings. Maybe your problem is not the RAM? What is it rated?

This is the ram in question, I believe, http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227362

^ Oh, how ironic it is that I actually have one of the exact same model on my table right now tongue.gif
Unfortunately, the one I have is a dead stick (errors in memtest). Check your setup with memtest to see if it does the same.
