It should be in the advanced menu in the BIOS where you adjusted the memory timings and CPU settings.

Yep, that's upping the volts for you. Sometimes, look at Jumperfree settings in ASUS boards. Just a quick thought, what your board?

Oh and, the PNY has a better heat dissipating, and it's optimised for better OCing compared to G.Skill, but the difference is too big IMO. I know PNY is also known to be higher priced everywhere.

I figured it out... you highlight the option, and press the + or - buttons... Stupid me, lol. It's set on auto now, what would be a good recomendation to get some more speed outta the ram? I have it at 850 right now. I've heard of people getting this G. Skill stuff I have up to 950... But that was in a newegg review.

Don't always trust Newegg revies. Also, it could just be a Botherboard config.

2.1V. That's the recommends setting for maximum performance with my RAM.

Yes, they have 2.1V, but the thing is I don't remember if it was with that type of volt some botherboard had problems with...

Yeah, I do believe it was for mid-range gaming, before the 680i.

What you could do is to get a RAM cooler to help cooling, depending how hot the system gets.
