Default oc+RAM=uh-oh

I want to oc my RAM but I don't want to screw it up. My BIOS says that if i put too high of a voltage the comp won't boot up, I know I can just clear CMOS but still. What is the max voltage I should use for Kingston Dual Channel Kit 256MB PC3200 Value RAM so that the system boots without problems?

My specs are:
CPU Clock:3006.81Mhz (2.8Normal)
System Clock:107.39Mhz
The rest of my specs are in my sig.

P.S. I know someone is going to say that i shouldn't oc Value RAM so I'm telling myself so u don't have to.

Uhm, I'm not positive, but I thought I heard you can put it to 2.8 even at stock, without a problem... Like ram usually can handle a good amount of power without showing any problems... might wanna google that though.

2.8V is fine for most RAM at stock speeds.

If you want to play it safe put your RAM at a fixed voltage (say 2.8V) and see what the best performance/stability you can get out of it.

Good Luck!
