Check this out. Per JEDEC standards DDR2 should be able to handle 2.3v w/o permanent damage even if it henders operation of the memory with such voltage.
Anyways, I've already killed these sticks once at 2.5v, along with another set which dead at 2.45v. Both sets are back in working condition and actually OC better then before. One trip to the oven @ 400F for 8 mins, cooled, then one trip to the freezer for a nights stay and both came out blazing. This doesn't always work, but I've been lucky. Plus, I have 3 pair of Ballistix double-sided ram. My currant set are housed in OCZ Flex II heat spreaders. The D9GCT in the OCZ just didn't run as fast as the GMH in the Ballistix. To bad I also pulled a couple modules off the GCT's when I removed them from the Flex II's.
I'm prbly gonna try to get another set to run 1228 and rule out ram limitation. I just think sense these can run 1200 @ 5-5-5-15 with 2.3v that they should be able to run 1228 @ 6-6-6-20 with 2.35v, but who knows. I will continue to try.
