I know this has been asked in another thread, but I didn't want to hijack his thread and it brought up a good point.

The spec sheet on this RAM says these can be run up to 2.9 vdimm. How much leeway would I have with this? When I set my mobo to 2.9 vdimm, it shows 2.96 in the BIOS. I haven't checked it with a multimeter yet, but I have checked my vcore a while back and it showed rock solid 1.35 when I BIOS shows 1.35, but the multimeter reads 1.58 volts when BIOS shows 1.56 vcore. Basically the higher I set my vcore, the more it overvolts compared to what BIOS showed it was actually at, according to my multimeter. Are you following me so far??

So I'm gonna "assume" the same holds true for my vdimm. If BIOS shows 2.96 when I manually set it to 2.9, it may actually read 2.98 with a multimeter. Give or take. I know I should play it safe and leave it @ 2.8, but I lose my 166 divider since it's not stable above 270 mhz at that voltage (275 mhz stable with 2.9 vdimm).
