I just bought my sandy bridge parts today. I think all of the ram is supposed to be 1.5v

Those G.Skills will work fine. I have the EXACT same kit and am running them at 1600 6-8-6-20 1T.

how did you get your timings so low? also how are you liking that asrock p67 board? thats the one im thinking about. im torn between that and the ud4. for the price the asrock looks really hard to beat.

Honestly, just threw the numbers in; wasn't hard to get 'em that low at all. Even kept the ram voltage on auto (I think it sits around 1.62v). Ran a bunch of stability tests and no problems yet.

I love the board- for the price you really can't beat it. The only complaint I would have is that the LLC is a tad finicky on it, but that seems to be a common trend in p67 boards. I have not had one problem with it so far; IMHO it is the best bang for your buck p67 motherboard.

you can use 1.6 or 1.65v volt RAM just fine on SB. I'm running 1.6v now with no issues.

It will work fine, however, anything over 1.5v Could affect the lifespan of your Cpu.

Since you already have an i7, it looks like you upgrade frequently, so it shouldn't matter.

No it wont, 1.65v are in the QVL of all the mobo manufacturers. 1.65v is fine, its not going to hurt anything.
